La’akea Kaufman

La’akea Kaufman was born and raised on the island of Maui and has the confusing first name to prove it. She is currently studying journalism with a minor in African studies at the University of Oregon School of Journalism and Communication. She is passionate about environmental and social justice issues, writing as a means of freedom, and the absurdity of the human condition. She hopes to work as a foreign correspondent in either East Africa or the Middle East, and to one day live in a treehouse.
