STUDENT: Samantha Okabe
CAMPUS: UC Davis
INTERNSHIP: California Department of Housing & Community Development
INTERNSHIP HIGHLIGHT: "My favorite part of interning in the policy division of HCD is the supportive environment in the office. At HCD, everyone is so supportive, hardworking, and inspiring. You really get the opportunity to pursue projects and implement policies that you are truly passionate about. It really is a team effort to make those huge housing plans a reality so it's amazing to see everyone work together and contribute towards making positive change in housing in California."
FUN FACT: "In my free time I love working on creative projects. I am incredibly in love with dancing and also enjoy making art with sea glass, binding haiku leis, and reflective writing for a personal blog."
CAREER GOALS: "My dream is to further my education, pursuing either housing development and planning or real estate law. I plan to eventually move back to Hawaii and advocate for Hawaiian residents, preserving their land and housing rights, and work directly in the development of more affordable housing and housing support for individuals experiencing homelessness."
