This week’s UH News Image of the Week is from University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo’s Jim Mellon, director of international student services. The photo was taken by Chelsea Freese.
Mellon shared, “Julia Polloi represented her nation of Palau at UH Hilo’s United Nations Day celebration on October 20. This annual event demonstrates unity among nations represented at UH Hilo and shows that aloha and compassion among different peoples is possible and powerful. The event also observes the United Nations’ efforts to promote world peace, which is especially important at this time. International programs at UH Hilo believe in the power of people-to-people exchange as a way to create a more peaceful and just world.”
