Flourish Where You’re Planted

By Desirae Mendija

Flourish Where You’re Planted is a new initiative I established through my reign as Mrs. Friendly Isle 2020. The goal of this initiative is to encourage Molokai youth to make the most of their unique talents and chase their dreams no matter how far-fetched it may seem. What better way to do so than to feature past and present community members on the island of Molokai who overcame adversity or defied all odds and made a difference.

Can you think of someone who inspires you or whose story deserves recognition? Nominate a community member today! We will be working with middle through high-school aged students throughout the island to conduct community member spotlight interviews. Interviews will be published in The Molokai Dispatch. Full interviews will be available on our blog and Facebook Page.

To nominate a community member, email flourishwhereyoureplanted@gmail.com. Please include your name, the nominee’s name and contact information and your reason for nominating this person.
