As a longtime friend of Read to Me International, a non-profit organization on Oahu that encourages reading aloud to children, I was offered the opportunity to photograph an event in January, 2019. This event was invitation only and provided free books to underprivileged families from the island. There were sing-a-longs and book readings, free food, and a live performance and reading from legendary ukulele performer, Jake Shimabukuro. Let me just say that Jake is an AMAZING performer. He was able to flawlessly perform his songs while also taking to the kids and keeping them engaged. I really enjoyed being able to meet and photograph this amazing musician/ human being. I look forward to my next opportunity to volunteer with Read to Me International.
