Penina Lima

League:
OIA

School:
Kapolei High School

Sports:
Soccer, Cross Country
 

Graduating in the top 5% of my class of 2012 with a 4.0 GPA, I have also been actively involved in soccer for the past four years during high school; playing on varsity since my Sophomore and Leahi Club Soccer for outside league.

After tearing my ACL last year while playing soccer, I recovered and joined the varsity cross country team. I am also a proud member of the Kamehameha Scholars Program in which I have been given the opportunity to participate in many community service events such as working with children at homeless shelters.

During my senior year of high school, I created mandatory tutoring sessions for student athletes at my school who were on ARS so that they could improve their grades and continue playing the sports they love.

After graduating from High School I plan on double majoring in Business Administration and Pre-Law at the University of Colorado Colorado Springs where they have an honorary Chancellor's Leadership Class and Honors Program. I would like to thank my family for their unconditional love and unwavering support over the past 17 years of my life; and to my parents who have been my biggest fans through everything.
