Kayden Rego

Kayden Rego is a student at University of Hawai'i–West O'ahu (UHWO) double majoring under the Business Administration program for Management and Marketing. Prior to attending UWHO, she received her liberal arts associate degree with studies of Exploratory Business at Leeward Community College (LCC).


During her time at LCC, Kayden became a student-employee at Kīpuka, Native Hawaiian Center at Pu’uloa as a Peer Mentor for a program guiding first-year students. From engaging in cultural activities within the program, she developed a greater understanding of the struggles many faced throughout the history of Hawai’i.

Appreciating the importance of community, Kayden and her family adopted a forgotten lo’i (taro field) in 2014 to restore and maintain. Since then, they have invited individuals, schools, and organizations to learn about the environment and process of harvesting food traditionally. While promoting the methods of how our ancestors sustained their health and well-being, participants and volunteers have expanded their relationships within the community.

Born and raised on the island of O’ahu, Kayden has recognized the lack of affordable housing. She has witnessed countless families, neighbors, and classmates leaving the islands due to economic instability. Wanting to improve the security of locals and Native Hawaiians, she yearned for gaining the knowledge of real estate and to work towards improving the lives of the underserved communities. After graduating from high school, she joined courses to receive the prerequisites of obtaining a real estate salesperson license.

Kayden is grateful and excited for the opportunity of working for EAH Housing under the CCRH internship. Being able to expand her knowledge and professional growth, she will be able to contribute to addressing the critical issues of affordable housing. Kayden is strongly committed to learning the development, management, and operations that leads quality and diverse communities.
