Meet our Callers
Aloha, my name is Aleczandra Aczon and I am one of the student supervisors here at the UH Foundation Call Center. I am happy to be attending the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa because Hawai‘i is where I consider to be my home. I am currently pursuing a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering. I’ve been working at the call center ever since my very first day of college and I am so grateful to have this job. From being here, I have grown to become a better communicator and a better leader. I love speaking with alumni and friends of UH and helping them make their gifts to the university. When I graduate, I’ll be sharing my aloha and be giving back to my alma mater!
Aloha, my name is Emily Tupper and I am a freshman at the University of Hawaiʻi at Manoa and one of the newest supervisors here at the University of Hawaiʻi Foundation. I decided to attend the UH to pursue degrees in both biology and classics, and I plan on attending medical school after finishing my undergraduate studies. Iʻm originally from Portland, Oregon but I decided to come to Hawaiʻi due to the superior biology program that UH offers. I started working for the foundation about two month ago and it has been so much fun! I really enjoy all the people I work with because they create such a positive and welcoming environment. I also love knowing that the work I do benefits so many of my peers and the whole University of Hawaiʻi system.

Aloha! My name is Miriam Joyce Lipman and I am a student supervisor at UHF call center. I was born in Hawaii and raised in Thailand, and came back to Hawaii for high school and college. I am now majoring in Tropical Agriculture and Environmental Management at UH Manoa. I love to be physically active throughout my day. I enjoy horse riding, surfing, and taking my dog on long walks. At the call center we connect with alumni, family, and friends of the colleges here at UH and help them make a gift in honor of their time here at UH or anything they are most passionate about within the school. I am grateful to be working with passionate and amazing people and we aren’t just coworkers but we’re like Ohana.

I have the privilege of getting to meet with the chancellors and deans of the UH colleges to find ways we can connect with alumni and family to support our students at UH. I am so grateful to this job, as it has taught me so much already. I’m proud of the work we do, and I’m happy I get to do it alongside some amazing people!
Aloha! My name is Jessica Johnson and I am a supervisor here at the UHF call center. I grew up in Ventura, California and am now at UH Manoa pursuing my passion for health with a major in nutrition.

I also love being active especially if I get to be outside surfing or hiking, but you can also always find me in a gym! I am so grateful to be a part of the team here at the call center. I get to go to work knowing I have the privilege of helping to make a difference for other students, faculty, programs and much more. It has been an honor to meet so many chancellors and deans as well as connect with alumni and friends of the school who are so driven and excited to give back to their community.
