We're all glad to be here, and are ready to help!

Keanu Young continues as the year-round Assistant Coordinator. He has worked in the legislative branch at both the state and county levels of government and has over a decade of legislative experience. Having worked for several Hawaii State Representatives in a variety of roles, Keanu is quite familiar with the legislative process and how things work at the Capitol. He enjoys spending his free time with his family.

Virginia Beck continues her role as PAR Coordinator. She couples her Master's Degree in Public Administration with years of service in the Public Access Room and other government, educational, and nonprofit settings. She's an avid reader, crossword puzzler, and enjoys getting outdoors.

Sydney Hart joins PAR as a Legislative Research Assistant for the session. She previously attended the University of Michigan and plans to return to finish her Bachelor's degree in Public Policy with a minor in Community Action and Social Change. Sydney appreciates the value of public service and has participated in political conferences, such as Girl's State and People's Congress Hawaii, in order to further her knowledge of the legislative process. She is ecstatic about the opportunity to work with PAR and looks forward to a future here in the Legislature.

Jasmine Humphries also joins PAR as a Legislative Research Assistant for the session. It is Jasmine's first time working session and she is excited to see what is yet to unfold this year at the capitol. She completed her AA with Leeward Community College and is currently pursuing her Bachelor's Degree in Business Management and Hospitality with University of Phoenix. She loves to learn and interact with people, and looks forward to helping our patrons learn, too. In her down time she enjoys writing, singing, spending quality time with her nephews, tanning on the beach, and exploring our island's beautiful hiking trails.
