Abigail is a first-year journalism student in her senior year. During this year, she hopes to learn more about the role of a journalist and become the bridge between her fellow classmates and essential news. In her free time, Abigail loves to read, watch k-dramas, and listen to music (especially K-Pop). However, her absolute favorite activity is to sleep the day away. One fact about Abigail is that she is currently pursuing her Associates in Arts degree in Hawaiian Studies and will be graduating from the Academy with a college degree in hand!

Sacred Hearts Academy seniors: (Top, left to right) Karissalyn Chang, Samantha Europa, Kaelin Apuakehau, Zahria Bell, Jolie Taurua, Layla Remiticado, (Bottom, left to right) Ava Damo, Emily Trueba, Abigail Walker, Aaliyah Gamboa, Vanessa Welch, and Rory Redila gather in support of the Native Hawaiian and other Indigenous children who have gone missing due to the trafficking industry. The red handprints on each of their faces is a symbol that indicates our solidarity with indigenous women and children who are missing and/or have been murdered. It also represents the fact that this is an issue where many of our stories have been silenced. “People that we are supposed to be able to trust that are all around us could be perpetrators of this very crime, and we may not even know it. However, by learning about this and realizing the effects of it, we can empower and equip ourselves with the knowledge to protect ourselves and others.” Photo by Abigail Walker.
