Congratulations, Sage!


We want to extend our most enthusiastic congratulations to our blog research assistant, Sage Kaiulani Kawelo, who graduates today from Marist College with a B.A. in History with minors in Gender and Sexuality Studies and Latin American/Caribbean Studies. Sage says:

“I’m from Wai’anae, Hawaii, and am one of a handful that has gone to college on the east coast. I’ve worked with a nonprofit in my hometown, Wai’anae Hawaiian Civic Club, for most of my life, but my Tarver internship with Hudson River Housing confirmed that nonprofit work was what I wanted to do. Starting this summer, I will be working as a youth counselor in a rehabilitative treatment program for adolescent men at the Children’s Home of Poughkeepsie. [. . .]”

“I enjoy studying the intersections of imperialist and anti-imperialist thought in Polynesia and the Caribbean, and am considering exploring this further in graduate studies. In the meantime, I will operate as an independent scholar, researching and writing as much as I can.”

We greatly appreciate Sage’s intellectual curiosity, outstanding research skills, and dedication to the blog. Please join us in wishing her the best of luck in her future endeavors.

Lisa and Ivette
