Kisha Borja-Kicho`cho`

Guåhu si Kisha Borja-Kicho`cho` (familian Låsaru). I am from the village of Mangilao on the beautiful island of Guåhan. I teach drama and creative writing at a local public high school and am also an adjunct instructor in the English department at the Unibetsidåt Guåhan. I have a B.A. in English from Hawai`i Pacific University and a M.A. in Pacific Islands Studies from the University of Hawai`i at Mānoa. I am also currently pursuing a second M.A. in Teaching from the Unibetsidåt Guåhan. I am a daughter, sister, partner, poet, activist, educator, and cultural perpetuator. I enjoy living on Guåhan, working in my local communities, and doing what I can to raise awareness about the Chamoru culture and people and the U.S. occupation of our home.
