    From Farris James:

    My former student posted this on Facebook! It is a new scholarship just for young women ages 12-18 of native ancestry (Native Hawaiian or Native American) to give them a "fighting chance" and to attend a cultural program. Find more info on the website below and please share with interested and eligible students.

    "Ilima Lei MacFarlane, Mentor, Presenter is a 2014 graduate from San Diego State where she majored in Cultural Anthropology and ran the pacific Islander Student Association. She went on to receive her M.A. in Liberal Arts and Sciences with a focus on indigenous issues. Originally from the island of Oahu, this Native Hawaiian has always dreamed of becoming an educator. However, her life took a slight detour when she began a successful career as a professional MMA fighter. Now 6-0 and World Champion Bellator MMA Flyweight. Ilima still continues to bring awareness to indigenous issues with hope and determination. In 2018, Ilima initiated "The Iliminator Scholarship" providing young females a fighting chance at opportunities in education."
