Olapa Ann Kawahakui Duvauchelle attends Molokai High School and was sponsored by Lahaina Sunset RC. Olapa is the first student from Molokai to receive the HRYF scholarship in its entire 47+ years. She is absolutely honored and thankful to obtain such a title! With this scholarship, she will be able to pursue a bachelor's degree in Graphic Design at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. Once she gets her degree, she hopes to bring proper representation to Molokai and all of Hawaii into mainstream media through her art. Ultimately, she wants to return to her home island and inspire future artists to follow their dreams just like she did.
