HAPPINESS U TURNED 10! How time flies. It’s hard to believe that 10 years ago we opened our doors to the public. Numerous individuals and countless organizations contributed to our success on this life-changing journey. Together we’ve made a difference!

Over this past decade:

  • 86 teachers and industry experts shared their knowledge
  • 10,105 individuals attended our studio in person
  • 1,056 virtual offerings kept our community connected
  • 10,725 professionals learned through our corporate programs
  • 5,497 State and City and County employees have been empowered
  • 27 students found renewed purpose in our community-sponsored scholarship program
    (Note: The attendance figures include multiple participation by the same individuals)

We look forward to another 10 years! Thank you from the bottom of my heart. My deepest gratitude goes to those who were in the trenches with me year after year. Erin Ushijima (the whole 10 years), Kristin Nicole Lobdell (the last five years), Valerie Moriwaki (the first five years), and of course so many more that have offered their expertise and support along the way. Thank you all.
