Subject: I'm really excited for our Hawaii rep this year. I've known Julianne for quite a few years now since she began running in the teen pageant. After a wonderful job as Miss Hawaii Teen USA she wanted to become Miss Hawaii USA and has competed several times for that title, moving up & down in the rankings. She has determination and yet is such a sweet person, a beautiful teacher (I mean, can you imagine HER being your school teacher??) and it's been a pleasure to see her mature into an amazing young women in the process. I wish Julianne Chu all success!
