While in school, Haruna developed interests in the ocean, photography, and travel. She has gone on multiple solo trips to Japan and Asia, exploring and documenting her travels before getting involved in volunteering. While working with the disaster relief organization All Hands and Hearts, Haruna worked alongside volunteers helping to restore safe water conditions to those affected by Cyclone Winston in Koro Island, Fiji. Back home, she worked as a dive guide earning multiple certifications and sharing her love of the ocean with others. Haruna now lives in California and works as a photographer alongside those who taught her. Besides travel and ocean exploration, Haruna is passionate about nutrition and exercise and hopes to further her studies in the next year.
