Heilala Potesio

I am currently a journalism student majoring in Communications and Business Administration at University of Utah. I have always had a passion for journalism, public relations and marketing.

I am heavily involved in public relations for a few organizations such as Evidence2Success in Kearns and Utah Pacific Islander Civic Engagement Coalition. I am also a board member of Utah Pacific Islander Health Coalition. I have always pursued my interest to help the underprivileged especially in the Pacific Islander Community.

As a first generation student in my family, I upheld the values of hard work and determination to become successful in academia. My goal is to help empower members in the Pacific Islanders to raise their pens and share their stories to help our communities.
