—Patience; patient, enduring, long suffering; to tolerate.
“I chose the word ahonui because patience is something I had to learn over the years to be successful in school, with my family, and with myself. Patience is needed to be able to see good results for something that cannot be rushed.”
—Angelica Afan, Early College student, Hawaiian 101, Hawaiʻi Community College
