Aloha and Mahalo to Kaianu David Valdivia and Kalena Kekoa Nohealani Romero, this month’s keiki cover models!

This month’s keiki cover model is Ysabelle Hera Sanorjo.

Ysabelle is four years old. She and her mom, Alaiza Sanorjo, assistant front desk manager at Ka‘anapali Beach Club, live on the west side in Lahaina.

Mom shares, “Ysabelle likes to draw, read, write, and sing, and she also makes videos of herself talking to her toys!

“Ysabelle is a very sweet and smart little girl. She says to me, ‘I love you, Mommy!’ every day, and gives me hugs and kisses when she knows I’ve had a long day. It’s amazing how she learned her ABCs and numbers all on her own. She inspires me to perform my best in everything I do. I work hard to become the woman I would love to see her grow up to be.”
