Waipahu “Wish Teen” Sosefina Receives a Wish from Make-A-Wish® Hawaii, Jewelers for Children, Hawaii Jewelers Association, Excellent Gems Hawaii, and Allegiant Air Pilots
On Saturday, March 12, 2016, a 16-year-old Waipahu “wish teen” named Sosefina learned her wish to visit Six Flags in California was about to come true, but that wasn’t all. Diagnosed with systemic lupus erythematosus, Sosefina has a lot more to worry about than a typical teen should, and when the Jewelers for Children learned of her struggle, they wanted her to shine—with a special gift to last a lifetime.
On Saturday afternoon at Excellent Gems & Diamonds, Sosefina was greeted by Mabel Lau at her store in the Chinese Cultural Plaza, along with co-executive directors Bernard Nunies and Sophia Makaimoku-Young of Hawaii Jewelers Association, to teach Sosefina about what any 16-year-old loves to behold: precious stones. Little did Sosefina know, Mabel is not only a veteran of the jewelry industry of over 43 years; she is also the president of Hawaii Jewelers Association, the local affiliate of Jewelers for Children.

You’re all in? Well, by God, let’s do this!’ I was totally surprised.” READ MORE
