Abstract:Brief excerpt from interview: My goal is to teach English... I'd like to be teaching English one day. I myself had a really hard time with English when I was growing up. Thus, I don't even know how I became an English major. It's kinda hard being in the military. You don't really know what your life is going to be like in a year. So it's hard to make goals when you're [unsure where you'll be moved next]. Even though I want to be a teacher, my ultimate dream goal if I could attain anything in life would be write children's books. In high school, I wrote one about a girl who was afraid of sharks... My grandma says [sharks are] my ʻaumakua, but I am not testing that theory out. Because I had such a hard time in English, I wanna write books for children that would make learning fun... Eventually I'd like to teach, but I'd also like to write books. I'm not gonna be a scholarly writer... but maybe I can write a children's book and teach them about caring for the stream.
