You are the best choice I’ve ever made 💙 I applied to BYU Hawaii at the last second just in case my first college option fell through. My mom said the application fee was a waste of $35, but I kept getting this feeling I should apply “just in case”. After lots of prayers, I realized that for some unknown reason Hawaii was where I needed to be. I had never even been to the islands, but I took a leap of faith and moved out here by myself at 18 years old! Just a few weeks later I met this cute surfer boy from Southern California and we all know how that story ends😜 It’s crazy how that one little decision completely changed my life in the best way possible. I never ever imagined I’d get married at 19 or have a baby at 22, but life is so much better than I thought possible ✨Best $35 I’ve ever spent.

North Shore, Oahu, Hawaii

I’m looking at colleges rn I’m now thinking of maybe applying to one school in Hawaii just for fun but thought of moving so far from family makes me nervous! What was your first college choice?
