“I was attracted to EWC because I wanted to get exposed to a broader Asia-Pacific community by connecting with emerging leaders throughout the region while being able to participate in timely research. While here at the Center, I have made lifelong friends, been provided with leadership opportunities, connected with researchers, and been part of programs that connect us with a sense of place here in Hawai‘i. There really is no place like it.”
