Jasmin Iolani Hakes
"We Are What Happens to Us”
Writer Jasmin Iolani Hakes was born and raised in Hilo, Hawaii. So it may be no surprise that her essays that have appeared in newspapers around the country, including the Los Angeles Times and Sacramento Bee, are often about her native land, its people, and cultures.

Currently residing in California, she has won numerous writing awards and acclaim. Her debut novel will be released in 2021 by Scribner, a Simon & Schuster imprint.
