“I moved to Hawaii when I was in fourth grade. I lived there until I graduated from Radford High School. I left Hawaii to attend college in Los Angeles and I never returned because the cost of living is too high. I love Hawaii and it will always be home. My parents still live there. There is no place like it! However, as a teacher, I would never make enough money there to live the lifestyle I enjoy.”
