• WHO IS YOUR PERSONAL HERO AND WHY? “My personal hero is my grandfather, Goro Hokama, because he always taught me to try my best in everything I do. He taught me the importance of studying hard in school, and of treating others with respect by doing so himself. He set an example for me by living his life with integrity and honor. Most importantly, he taught me to be proud of my family, where I am from and who I am.”
