2023 Spirit and Health Speaker: Christina Cawdery

Eighth grade Punahou English teacher Christina Cawdery traveled to the Galapagos Islands last year as one of 50 Grosvenor Teacher Fellows with Lindblad Expeditions and the National Geographic Society.

While there, she was deeply moved by the locals’ stories about their island home, where the land is treated as an equal and a loved one, and struck by the power of stories to convey such compassion and awe for nature.

Just as they did for her in the Galapagos, stories that blend science with art can help visitors understand Hawai‘i’s unique setting. This was the poignant message Cawdery shared with K – 12 students as the Chapel Spirit and Health Speaker this spring, thanks to the Dr. Raymond Fah and Estelle Kan Kong Endowed Fund.

In regarding the land as an equal and understanding the power of storytelling, we can create a more sustainable and harmonious world, she said.
