Hi my name is Ria Shimabukuro, I am originally from Honolulu, Hawaii but currently live in Irvine, California. I am doing my undergraduate studies in Economics at Concordia University Irvine. I have a passion for surfing and water sports, and I have participated in club and interscholastic outrigger canoe paddling, and competitive surfing. I was previously employed by Local Motion Inc. I still work there seasonally and maintain a good relationship with the company. I loved working in retail, and I learned a lot about the surf industry. I would love to build connections and work an internship at surf or action sports company. I love southern California and being able to keep up an active lifestyle while working towards my career goals.
