Esther Chan: Cybercrime Fighter
She may not wear a mask or a cape, but in the eyes of Hawai‘i’s kūpuna, Esther Chan is their very own superhero as she continues her battle against online crime in cyberspace — one workshop at a time — wielding only her mighty curriculum and stalwart spirit. “In general, kūpuna are more vulnerable because they are more trusting,” says Esther. “They may also be less familiar with technology or less aware of cybercrime and may not have anyone to teach them about it.”
Start a Healthy New Year at the Y
For seniors, the gym can be a daunting place and it’s hard to know what to do or how to get started – especially for kūpuna who perhaps have not been to a gym in a long time — maybe not ever. The Y is a great place for new exercisers! In fact, 73% of YMCA of Honolulu members identified as health seekers, meaning they want to get healthy but struggled with how to do so and chose the Y for help.
