Ka’ena was born and raised in North Shore, Oahu. She graduated from Mililani High School (Go Trojans!) and University of Hawaii at Mānoa with a B.S. degree in Kinesiology and Rehabilitation Services (KRS). She plans to further her education by pursuing a doctorate degree in physical therapy. She travels often to Japan and Alaska to visit family and friends and the key to winning her heart is anything related to Disney, dogs, and potatoes! In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her friends and family, trying out new places to eat, walking her dog on the beach and anything outdoors!
