Catherine is from Hilo, born and raised, homeschooled until 16 then began attending HCC as a dual-credit enrollment student, transferred to UH at 17. She graduated in Spring of 2024 from University of Hawaii at Hilo with her BS in Computer Science. If she’s able to find a suitable job she’d like to go for her master’s of CS, but doesn’t have much interest in anything further except for teaching purposes. She can usually be found on her computer working on personal projects or playing games. She also dabbles in various types of crafting, making jewelry, water colors, digital art and the like, but a good book will hold her attention for hours.
