Dear ManoaDNA.com Readers,

As most of you know, last week, I entered my design into the SPAM can design contest. Hundreds of entries were submitted for vote, hoping to be featured on the Low Sodium Can in Hawaiʻi. There were a TON of great designs, and I was truly honored to be up for vote with some of Hawaiʻi’s greatest artists!

While being featured on the ballot was a honor in itself, the true gratification is owed to all of you who voted for me. I was overwhelmed by the response from my family & friends and it’s thanks to all of you for spreading the word! I may not have won, but at least I know there are a LOT of people who care about me and want me to do well. That’s something really special, and I will never take that for granted.

So thank you again for voting for me. I hope you truly did enjoy my design, I was very proud of it, and I am extremely satisfied with my participation. Hopefully there’s a next time, because I would love to do it again!

Mahalo gozaimasu!
Nick

P.S. A shout-out to the ladies in Arcadia who read my blog. They stopped me in the hallways specifically to tell me that I do not write enough. Hope this makes up for it!
