HWANG, Joseph C.

I was born and raised in Oahu. I moved to Mililani Mauka, when I was four years old. I attended public schools at Mililani and then graduated Mililani High School on May 16, 2010. Hard work is something that I truly believe as a principle to be successful. My parents taught me the values of working hard because they came to Hawaii and worked their way up. So I know how to be hard-working.
