Born and raised in New York City, Re­becca Pike made her way to Honolulu in 2007 and has been writ­ing about unique ex­pe­ri­ences for both vis­i­tor and lo­cal read­ers ever since. She did so on page 68 with her vi­gnettes of Ye Nguyen, a mid­wife, and Molly Jenk­ins and Mamie Lawrence Gal­lagher, lead­ers at Mo‘O School, where Pike’s 4-year-old daugh­ter is part of its first co­horts. “All three are liv­ing lives of pur­pose and per­pet­u­at­ing peace and love through con­nec­tion with oth­ers at cru­cial pe­ri­ods in their lives, be it the birth of a first child or guid­ing a small child through her first years of education,” she says. “It’s pro­fes­sional, but it’s per­sonal, too.”
