Kaila Kalauokaaea-Kahele

Kaila, a native of Hawaii, spent most of her upbringing on the beautiful island of Maui, although her parents hail from Oahu. Her passion lies in the realm of cancer research, but her ultimate goal is to return to Hawaii and provide medical care to underserved areas, particularly the native Hawaiian communities. Spending quality time with loved ones, immersing herself in books, movies, and TV shows, enjoying music both through personal devices and live concerts, and striving to live in the present moment are sources of joy for Kaila. Walking alone while listening to music serves as a cherished pastime, offering her a chance to decompress and savor the simple pleasures of life after a busy day. Exploring new dining experiences and embarking on outdoor adventures, such as discovering hiking trails or visiting hot springs during colder months, are activities that she enjoys with her friends.
