Abstract: Brief excerpt from interview: I think just doing research and finding out about the place you grew up in and lived in will always stay with you... It's really interesting to look back at your work... so I feel like it's hard to put so much research and so much thought and energy into a paper when you have four other classes to balance, so I'd like to probably go back and do more research about the stream. Figure out what I can do to help, maybe figure out what I can do to fight the Kahuku fight. I don't remember [my other Writing Intensive courses]. I really don't... I remember everything about Candace's class, because they're so personal to me. The papers in the other Writing Intensives, you're writing just to write it... Some professors just want you to write what they want to hear. But Candace - she really is invested in what you have to say, and I think that's why the writing I've done for her class is so memorable, because I'm so personally invested in it. [It is inspiring to be a writer] when you're connected to the things you're writing about. At least for me. There's so much research that goes into writing a novel... but I just don't see it. Maybe that's just a testament to the good writing they do. I think that's why Professor Fujikane makes us write a moʻolelo and makes us write a connection part to our paper, so that our readers can better understand such a boring subject like stream preservation.
