On July 8, 2016, JASH Junior Ambassadors (JAs) met with Governor David Ige at the state capitol and discuss with him their upcoming trip to Fukuoka, Japan to participate in the Asian-Pacific Children’s Convention. Governor Ige presented the JAs with state pins to take with them to Japan and tell people about the beauty of Hawaii. The JAs were then able to ask him questions about what it is like to be governor of Hawaii. The JAs leave for Japan on July 9, 2016. They are very excited to have met with the governor right before they depart and now leave with a better understanding of their roles as Junior Ambassadors of Hawaii.
