MAKALEA is a former World Vision sponsored child herself, and current World Vision Artist Associate, using her gifts and talents to share her testimony through speaking, song and dance.

Abandoned at birth and left on a garbage dump by a river in Korea, Makalea was given a second-chance at life, when she was found and taken to a nearby orphanage. She was eventually sponsored through World Vision, and then adopted and brought to the States. Her heart's desire is to bring awareness to the global problem of poverty, both spiritually and physically. She believes that spiritually, we all need the saving grace of Jesus Christ in our lives, and physically, everyone must have basic living essentials to survive. These two combined give the gift of "life in all it's fullness". She feels blessed that the Lord saved her from a life of uncertainty, so that she can help others.

Makalea has directed and choreographed community musical productions, taught at workshops, teaches dance and piano and leads worship for various events. Makalea and her students have won many Regional, National and High Point Awards for her Polynesian dance and choreography. She has danced for Dance For His Glory Dance Troupe and Soaring Spirit Dance Ministry. She has also instructed for Dance Arts Academy as the Polynesian Division Director, San Jose Parks and Recreation Department, and was the Co-Founder/Director for LambLight Productions. She has consulted and planted many dance ministries in California. Among her vast credits she has appeared on the cover of, or in various publications. She has danced for local and internationally known Recording Artists including guest performances for Hawaiian recording Artists George Kahumoku, Jr. and Daniel Ho in Concert and Hawaiian Island Ministries Pacific Rim Christian Equipping Conference, The Big Kahuna Race, Santa Cruz and various venues for Macy's and Nordstrom, to name a few.
