Sitting in the middle of the grass near the mirror pools at PCC, Ka’inoamakua Otsuka Mandaloniz, a Lancer student, was enjoying his evening listening to music with his big blue headphones. Someone that was minding his own business, was willing to talk about his life.
Lancers’ Lives: Twin bond embedded in Hawaiian roots
Born and raised on the beautiful island of Kauai, 19 year old twins Shawna and Shane Ogata bring their academics, athleticism, and their Hawaiian hospitality to PCC. Both majoring in business, Shawna played two seasons for the Lancers volleyball team, while Shane plays baseball. The twins share a passion for the beach and their natives roots but what makes them stand out is the love they have for each other. Unlike most siblings, Shane and Shawna are best friends.
