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.
My name is YuJin Kim, a supervisor at the UH Foundation Call Center. I'm on my third year of school, majoring in Computer Science. During the end of my freshmen year, I came across the call center and learned about what they do. So far, it has been one of the best decisions Iíve made in my college career. 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.
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 Mānoa 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!

Working in the call center has been very rewarding because it helped me gain strong people skills, set and achieve goals, meet other students, and all while helping better the University of Hawaii.
