News! Alex speaking to kids for Ohana Arts Summer School

New pics popped up of Alex. He seems to have visited a summer school, held at Hongwanji Mission School, speaking of his profession.

Ohana Arts Summer Festival and School invites students completing grades 1-12 to join the growing number of talented youth this summer to study with world-class faculty and guest artists from around the country in music, dance, and drama. Students from schools island-wide will gather at the Hongwanji Mission School and Pacific Buddhist Academy to grow together as young artists in a supportive and motivating atmosphere. link
