Congratulations Jennifer Poblano, Full Life Hawaii participant who co-wrote her first book called “Fuzzyland”! With the assistance of Kat Belleci, Employment Direct Support Worker, Mar Ortaleza, Employment Services Coordinator, and her parents Tom and Debbie, four images from Jennifer’s self-illustrated book were converted into a promotional poster. The poster was then submitted and accepted in this year’s 2nd Annual Ohaha Care Art Show in Honolulu!
The theme for Ohana Care art show, “Kulia i ka nu’u- Strive to reach the highest”, is a Hawaiian proverb or ‘olelo no’eau and motto of Queen Kapi’olani. Check out Jennifer’s “Fuzzyland” poster and her bio for the upcoming art opening, which will be at the Ohana Health Plan Regional Sales Office, on Sept 17th at 5pm.
When her book is published, Jennifer plans to having book signing events around Hawai’i Island, as well as participate in the Abled Hawai’i Artists 9th Annual Art Festival in July,2016. Below is a picture of last year’s artwork, created by our Learning Center participants and its supporters! Great job to Jeri Raymond, Director of Full Life’s Learning Center, and her creative crew!
