This week on Humans of Mānoa we are very lucky to meet Naftali Tolibas! My name is Naftali, I’m 22 and I am a senior undergraduate student in Mechanical Engineering. I decided to go to UH because… First of all, my parents didn’t want me to leave. That's the truth, haha. Next, I was actually humbled and grateful to be honored a full ride scholarship to UH. So that was kind of a no-brainer. Initially, if I didn’t get that scholarship, I was probably going to go to a CC and start from there. But I’m really grateful to have the opportunity to start here at UH and actually complete school in four years, which is pretty hard to do in Engineering.
