Name: Kira Kananiho‘ohi‘eana Chong Tim

Hometown: Anahola

Kira Chong Tim got this tattoo a year ago when she completed her time as a University of Hawai‘i Rainbow Dancer. The flower is a lotus and symbolizes the sun and rebirth in Egyptian culture. Kira also means the sun in Egyptian and she liked this connection with her name and Egyptian mythology. The quote “Challenge fuels passion” inspires her and reminds her to stay focused on achieving her dreams.
