PUKALANI (HawaiiNewsNow) – Nanea Ah You, 18, has been named Kamehameha Schools Maui’s salutatorian this year.

The honor is just one of her many accomplishments so far.

Ah You wants to be a filmmaker when she grows up.

She has been fascinated with visual storytelling for as long as she can remember.

Nanea and her parents thought they were doing an interview with Hawaii News Now for an award she recently won in Olelo Community Media’s Youth Xchange Student Video Competition. However, during the interview, they learned that she won another award – the “Take Me to Manoa” contest – one full year of free tuition to the University of Hawaii at Manoa.

“Oh my gosh! Oh my gosh! Thank you!” Nanea said.

Nanea said she always wanted to be a rainbow warrior.
