Surfer-Scholar Goes to Stanford

Roxy-sponsored surfer girl Maluhia Kinimaka will leave her home surf break in Kauai to study engineering at Stanford University. This story hits particularly close to home as my day job is working as a college counselor at an independent high school in Los Angeles. I am so proud of Maluhia for pursuing her education at such a high level.  I know first-hand how selective the admission pool is to Stanford, and for Maluhia to be admitted she must be an exceptional student and person. In the full article about Maluhia on The Inertia, she said,  “I always believed that if you’re doing something because it makes you happy, success will follow naturally.” We couldn’t agree more.
