(Press Release) — Kailanianna C. Ablog, granddaughter of Violeta Ablog and the late Nestor R. Ablog, Rita “Dengir” Gracia Kazuma, and Sen. Ramon “Kumoi” Santos Deleon Guerrero, graduated with a magna cum laude designation from the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa.

During her three years as an undergraduate, Kailanianna earned her bachelor of arts degree in anthropology and certifications in ethnic studies and Korean.

She was an active member of the UHM community, having served in multiple leadership positions including opinions editor and co-managing editor for Ka Leo O Hawaiʻi, UHM’s student newspaper, and the archaeology representative and webmaster for the Anthropology Undergraduate Student Association or AUSA.

Kailanianna also became a member of the Golden Key International Honor Society, Pi Gamma Mu, and Phi Beta Kappa.

During the summer of 2019, Kailanianna studied at Yonsei University’s Korean Language Institute for three months.

Since graduating in May, she has become an intern for “Lady Pasifika,” a creative platform that highlights Pacific Islander women and their stories. She plans on attending graduate school after taking a gap year. 

Kailani is the daughter of Agnes Ablog Okuma, alumni of Marianas Baptist Academy (1998) and Raymond K. Deleon Guerrero, alumni of Mt. Carmel School (1998).
