Kaleieha Tuitupou – “So’o le fau ma le fau”, in working together we can accomplish great things – a mentality Kalei would keep in mind as she grew up in the diverse Westside culture of Salt Lake City. As a current junior at the University of Utah, she is a Sociology major with an emphasis in Criminology and an English Creative Writing minor. She is interested in the stories of people and was able to serve for a year and a half in New York City, where she was able to meet and talk to many people of different backgrounds. Before this service, she was a tutor for students from refugee families and worked on an urban farm in Glendale for Utahns Against Hunger. While Kalei enjoys learning all types of stories and visiting other places, she knows the best stories come from a family at home, because knowing where you come from helps you to know where you are going. She is very excited for this adventure as a Pasifika Ambassador serving with University Neighborhood Partners through the University of Utah Pacific Islander Studies Initiative.
