Sean Sugai
University of California-Los Angeles
Environment

Sean is a first-generation college student double majoring in human biology and society and anthropology with a minor in public health at the University of California-Los Angeles. Born and raised in Waipahu and Pearl City, Hawai’i, Sean’s passion for environmental justice stems from his family’s roots in the Philippines, Japan, and Hawai’i. Inspired by their resilience in the face of plantation labor, immigration, anti-Asian racism, and assimilation, Sean aims to become an anthropologist who researches the undercurrents of the U.S. empire in the Pacific to understand how the liberation of people must be situated within the liberation of lands and oceans.
