“I wanted to be Miss Hawai‘i USA because I wanted to be an inspiration to children in Nanakuli and other areas where negative stereotypes exist,” Hoohuli said. “I want them to see themselves in me and realize that they too can achieve anything that they work hard for.”

Hoohuli, who has danced at Carnegie Hall in New York and spent a a day with Nelson Mandela in South Africa, was a staff writer and Kalamalama Arts and Entertainment editor in 2004. She still contributes to the paper, and has joined the staff on Press Club outings, according to Faculty Editor Larry LeDoux.

Hoohuli, whose full name is 52 letters long (Radasha Emmaline Leialohawahineuiokalani Kam Chin Hoohuli), plans to become a doctor of optometry. Her hobbies include surfing, reading, and dancing hula.

Miss Teen Hawai‘i Melissa Benz, 18, is a graduate of Hawai‘i Baptist Academy who plans to attend Cal State Fullerton this fall.

The pageants were held at the Sheraton Waikiki hotel. More than $100,000 in scholarships and prizes were awarded.
