On Wednesday, June 29 and Friday, July 1, the JASH Junior Ambassadors (JAs) made two separate appearances on local news stations. On June 29, the 2016 JAs made their debut on Hawaii News Now Sunrise. The segment kicked off with an interview between JASH President Lenny Yajima and Hawaii News Now Billy V. The two discussed the main aspects of the program and JASH’s role in the JA training process. Following the interview, the JAs shared their hula, E Ku’u Tutu, and later toured the studio with Billy V.
On July 1, the JAs made their second news appearance on KHON2 Wake Up 2day. JASH President Lenny Yajima introduced the program to KHON2 Jai Cunningham. They discussed the APCC program in Japan, what the JAs could expect from the program, and how other students can apply to the program in the following years. After the brief interview, the JAs again performed their hula and took pictures with Mr. Cunningham. These two performances have greatly benefited the JAs and allowed them to get a better sense of what it will feel like to perform live on stage at the We Are the Bridge Festival 2016 during their stay in Fukuoka.
