Aloha! My name is Kevynne Fountain-Pokipala and I’m a student supervisor at the Foundation Call Center. I’m currently a Sophomore at Kapiʻolani Community College working to finish my Associates degree before I transfer to UH Manoa and pursue a Kinesiology degree. I’ve been working at the call center for just over a year, and I am so thankful for this job. Here at the call center I have learned many important skills that I can utilize in the future. In my free time I love to hang out with friends, exploring the island and making new memories that will last a lifetime. In the future I hope to become an athletic trainer and be able to give back to the Foundation that has given me so much.
Hello! My name is Meigan Flanagan and I am one of the student supervisors at the UH Foundation Call Center. I am a sophomore at UH Manoa studying human nutrition and food science. My ultimate goal after graduating college is to work in a hospital as a registered dietician where I hope to make a difference by helping & counseling people with diabetes. My time here at the call center has been amazing and I have learned so many things that I know will definitely help me out in future employment and in the classroom as well. One of my favorite things about working at the call center is hearing chancellors and deans talk about upcoming events and programs being held at all 10 UH campuses. I am really looking forward to the day that I can give back to the foundation. If I am not at work or in school, I like to go to my favorite beach in Waimanalo!

I absolutely love the impact the UH Foundation makes on our campuses. But most importantly, the best part of the job is the people I work with. Everyone in the call center is here to achieve the same goal for the entire UH system, which makes this job incredibly enjoyable. On days when I donít have work or homework, I like to relax indoors and play my guitar.

Aloha! My name is Maria Ena Rose Bartolome and I am a student at the University of Hawaiëi at Manoa. Originally from Hawaii Island, I came to Oahu to get my bachelors in public health. Working at the UH Foundation is a learning experience that Iíll never regret. I am surrounded by my fellow UH students as coworkers. And with the time I have spent working with the UH Foundation from the start of my college career, I ended up building friendships that will last beyond graduation. Because of this I took upon myself to use my experiences and skills that I have gained so far to become a supervisor to contribute to the success of UH Foundationís Annual giving. Raising important funds for the university, I realized is a big responsibility but itís a huge accomplishment to know we are a part of something great.
