Shawn graduated in 2001 at Moanalua High School. His life had some challenges, his confidence was not good enough, he was an introvert, and he had a mental disability. He can respond slow at times, his speech is sometimes slurred. and his tonality is often hard to hear. However, if you respond well he can manage. He works as a Donation Attendant at Goodwill Hawaii. He believes in leadership and positive change. His passion of learning is always collaboration and teamwork.
