Hi everyone! My name is Grant Nakasone, and I'm a sophomore journalism major at the University of Hawai'i at Mānoa. I was born and raised on Oahu, having grown up in Wahiawa but attending school in neighboring Mililani, where I graduated from Mililani High School in 2022.

My interest and eventual passion for journalism sparked in the latter years of high school after taking numerous media and expository writing courses, while also developing a particular interest in local, national, and global politics. That passion has only been enhanced and inflamed throughout my relatively short time in the journalism program at UH.

I believe that as journalism students and aspiring professional journalists, we all have an obligation and commitment to the pursuit and proliferation of the truth. With the very definition of truth becoming so convoluted and lost over the past years, the responsibility to recenter and refocus the perception and interpretation of it, rests on our shoulders.

Although I'm aware that many challenges lie ahead, I hope to earn a professional career in broadcast journalism in Hawai'i, allowing me to work directly with the unique and special community that did so well to raise me, my family, my friends, and everyone else in the state of Hawai'i.
