Crossing Spaces: Chuuk FSM to Hawai’i

Shirley Thompson

Crossing Spaces is a series of three documentary shorts profiling three Micronesian women in Honolulu as they grapple with the challenges of higher education and work to enact meaningful change for their families and communities.

As the newest group of Pacific Islanders to arrive in the Hawaiian Islands, Micronesians aspire to the same dreams as every new immigrant group before them. Similarly, many face discrimination and poverty as they struggle to build new lives. Despite these obstacles, higher education remains the key to unlocking the American dream for themselves and their families.

This Youtube clip is the second of the three mini documentaries in the Crossing Spaces series. Inspired by her grandfather who influenced her faith in God and encouraged her to go to school, Nanette Fritz is determined to become a teacher, support other single mothers, and graduate from Kapiʻolani Community College.
