THE EARLY YEARS
June 10, 2018
As a young child, Nishi had a lot of experiences in being in different places. Throughout her childhood, Nishi moved around the central areas of Oahu and became accustomed to being able to adapt to new places.
“I grew up all over the place; I was born and lived in Nu’uanu until I was I guess elementary school age and then I moved to Kaimuki. And I attended Liholiho Elementary School and Kaimuki Intermediate, and Kaimuki High School. And then our family moved to Moanalua and I should have transferred to Farrington (High School) but I didn’t want to have to start all over again with making friends when I was a Sophomore, so I just commuted every day from Moanalua to Kaimuki,” said Nishi.
