My name is Kauwila Mahi, and I am a graduate student in Hawaiian Studies at University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa. I am from Kamiloiki, Waimānalo, Koʻolaupoko, Oʻahu. I attended Pūnana Leo o Kawaiahaʻo and Ke Kula Kaiapuni ʻo Ānuenue, both Hawaiian Language Immersion programs here on Oʻahu. However, I graduated from Lincoln High School in San Jose, California. I have worked for two local brands as a cultural consultant, the two brands are FITTED HAWAIʻI, and Paradise Soccer Club. Currently, I am focused on finishing my thesis which uses ludology, the experience of a gamer, as it pertains to video games which depict Hawaiʻi.
