Micronesians in Hawaii | Honolulu Magazine

Matt and I worked on a story this summer about being Micronesian in Hawaii for Honolulu Magazine. It was a pleasure learning about their culture and how different life is on the tropical islands that make up Micronesia. Full article here.

Josie Howard, originally from Chuuk, is the administrator of the Imi Loa program at Goodwill Hawaii, which offers job training and support to Micronesians
