Abstract
This qualitative, ethnographic case study investigated the journeys of three mana wāhine who earned a certificate or degree from the University of Hawaiʻi Maui College. The study aimed to understand how these wāhine characterized their success in this community college. The study also identified the influencers that contributed to their achievements. Key findings included the importance of ʻōlelo, ʻike, and nohona Hawaiʻi as well as Hawaiian heritage in boosting their self-esteem. Other factors that contributed to their success were: support systems, feeling and achieving success, advocacy, a louder voice, and journey of discovery.
