OWN Featured in Hawaiian News

Last week, our OneWorld Now!-Hawaii program was featured in the Star Advertiser – Hawaii’s main newspaper!  We’re really proud of our students and we especially loved one of our OWN-HI student’s quotes (Codi Kelii, age 17) who said “It’s changed the views of my parents.  They always thought that the Arab world was bad, and thought about terrorism and stuff.  I talk about the class and it’s changing their perception.”

That’s transformation in action.  When one person changes, the whole community can be changed!  Powerful stuff!  These youth keep inspiring our work.
