Welcome Back!

Welcome to the new school year.

I’m excited for this year, as I have Organic Chemistry with Dr. Terem, and Calculus II (math is my favorite subject) with Dr. Wong.


This past summer I’ve been working in the admissions office, you may have seen me, and volunteering in one of the research labs on campus. I’ve yet to decide if I want to practice medicine or work in the research field after graduation. I’m glad we have advisors on campus for both the Med School track and Research area.

In the meantime, if you’d like to come by for a campus tour, you can call our admissions office at (808)739-8340 to schedule an appointment. Also, please feel free to email me if you have any questions about campus life.


P.S. I’ll try to post more about school this semester (:




If you’ve never tried an Acai bowl, you def need to! Diamond Head Cove Health Bar has THE BEST acai bowls. No joke. I just discovered what they were when my roommate practically force-fed it to me. Like, they are soooo good. There are no words in the English language that can express my feelings for this Acai bowl. It’s a bonus too because the Health Bar is close to Chaminade. I have gone there at least once a week to get acai bowls.

Don’t they look super good?



Intense Basketball Games

OMG! Last night was probably the most intense basketball game that I’ve ever seen. Chaminade Men went into Overtime with BYU-Hawaii. I was literally at the edge of my seat the whole time. They had previously played each other last month, in Laie, where Chaminade won in Double Overtime with a 3-pt buzzer beater. But last night was so awesome. We were pretty much tied up throughout the whole game. Our team was even 100% at the freethrow line up until the last couple minutes. In the end we lost 98-99, with a BYU basket made in the last two minutes. It was pretty amazing though. A lot of dunking went on. I’ve never seen a college basketball game like that.


If you wanna read more about the game, or learn more about the athletics program, you can go here:



This is Chaminade’s official Athletics Website. You can also follow them on Twitter @goswords, or like them on Facebook.

Look who I found!

About two weeks ago, I took a trip to the Big Island with my family since it was a three day weekend. In some of our free time we went to the Lyman Museum in Hilo. While walking through the Hawaii exhibit, I saw this guy! The SILVERSWORD. It’s not real, but it’s life size! That thing is a giant.




Break is Over!

Winter break was good but now its time to go back to school.


This break I went to all my sisters basketball games. She’s a sophomore in high school and Captain of her JV basketball team. I’m so proud of her! They won enough games during the season to go to the first round of playoffs! Here’s a picture I took with my sister at one of her games:




Another thing I did over the break was work at the Chaminade Men and Women Basketball Games. They are amazing! If you have free time, come to the next home game on Feb. 3 where both teams will be facing Azusa Pacific! If you haven’t seen Chaminade play, then you definitely must!

Christmas Break!

Finished my last final on Thursday! Now time to start Christmas Break: moving out of the dorm, putting up lights, setting up the tree, and drinking Caramel Brulée from Starbucks. Christmas is my favorite time of the year!

Here’s a picture of the Christmas lights on campus, beautiful!

I hope everyone has a safe Christmas Break!

Polynesian Cultural Center

This past weekend I had the opportunity to go to our Polynesian Cultural Center with the AAP program. The cultural center features six villages: The islands of Samoa, Fiji, Aotearoa, Hawaii, Tonga and Tahiti. I also got to see the night show, Hā: The Breathe of Life. It was awesome! Check out some of my pictures!

My Personal Equation

In my Freshman Experience Class, we had an assignment to create a personal logo or phrase that represents ourselves.  Being an analytical person, I thought of creating an equation that represents my life.


The K represents Kahealani, my name. HJ represents my Hawaiian and Japanese culture. They are under a square-root because I feel that my life is a half-half of both cultures. This is multiplied by the quantity of Fwhich is my Family + T, which is my best friend. F is put to the fourth power because my family consist of four ladies: Myself, Kanoe (my sister), Mom, and Mama (my grandma). I find that this quantity of F and T have molded me into the person I am today. They are also my support system and I wouldn’t have gotten to Chaminade without them. C represents my Career Goal. It is divided by 2 because I have two different career goals. A part of me wants to become a Dentist, but another part of me wants to go into research studies. This quantity is put to the power of P, which is my passion. I have a passion to help others, as well as a passion in science. S is school, which is Chaminade. School has always played a big part in my life. School is important to me and is added to my equation because it takes up most of my time, but I still love it. All of this is put the the power of G = Power of God. My life would be nothing if it wasn’t for God. Thank you, Jesus.



Aloha Mai Kākou!

Aloha! ʻO Kahealani koʻu inoa. He umikumahiku oʻu makahiki.

No Waipahu, Hawaiʻi mai au.

Hello! My name is Kahealani. I am 17 years old. Iʻm from Waipahu, Hawaiʻi.

Welcome to my blog! I’m so happy to have you here! My name is Kahealani, but everyone calls me Kahea. I am a Freshman at Chaminade University. I major in Biochemistry and I’m apart of the Pre-Med program. I was born and raised in Hawai’i, on the island of O’ahu. I’m originally from Waipahu, which is on the west side of O’ahu, but now I live in a dorm on campus. I live in Kieffer Hall, the only all girls dorm that Chaminade has.

That’s all I have to share for right now. If you have any questions or want to know more about Chaminade, living on campus, or Biochemistry, don’t hesitate to ask. Feel free to comment or email me (kahealani.uehara@student.chaminade.edu)!
