Kumsa's EARTH University Internship 2018

In March of 2018, Kumsa spent a month in Costa Rica at EARTH University where she undertook an internship in Organic Farming. EARTH University published this article about her time with them: "From Hawaii to Earth: A Passion for Paradise"

"Kumsa Maphalala, 18, hails from the Big Island of the Hawaiian archipelago, where she grew up on a sustainable, hectare-large family farm, surrounded by well-loved sheep, goats and cows. Her idyllic, earth-rooted upbringing formed her appreciation for organic agriculture and her desire to ‘pay it forward’ whenever possible."
