Hoo-RAE!: This is Me


It’s me!

By Lauren Kalama, staff writer

Hi, I’m Lauren or what my parents call me, Lauren Rae, and this is my life. Welcome!

Here’s a little about who I am. I’m outgoing, goofy, but mostly, always happy. I love to see the positive side of everything and anything. I am a daughter, sister, friend, dancer, writer, videographer, photographer, and a dreamer.

Throughout my life, I have created many friendships, gone on many adventures, and made long-lasting memories with the ones I love the most. It’s been a fun 16 years so far.

Ever since I was a little girl, I always dreamt of being the one who draws the Disney symbol, says their name, and goes “and you’re watching Disney Channel.”

Here I am, a junior at Kamehameha Schools Maui, and in the beginning, I had this view of high school as the perfect place. I soon came to realize that this was nothing like High School Musical, and that’s okay. I’m just trying my best to survive my junior year right now.

The one thing that always kept me going, was and still is, dancing, more specifically, hula. It has shaped me into the person I am today, even though I am still figuring that out.

I know I have a long way to go, but time is ticking, and soon I’ll be a senior. It’s crazy to think how fast high school has gone by, but I look forward to more memories, more smiles, and more laughs.

I am incredibly thankful for all the experiences and opportunities I have been given, and I can’t wait to try new things, like this right here, blogging.

For now, this is all I have to say: I’m Lauren Kalama and this is my blog, Hoo-RAE! Follow me throughout the rest of my high school journey!
