"McKenna Maduli, host of Talk Story, welcomes JT Ojerio onto the show. JT is a Punahou grad and wrestler with a Master’s Degree in Exercise Physiology, but she discovered her talents go well beyond the gym. She is a self-taught artist that found the therapeutic healing powers of art as she recovered from a surgery during her time in Chicago. While studying on the mainland, JT was missing her Island home and found comfort bringing the beauty of Hawai’i to life on paper. JT presents McKenna with a beautiful self-portrait and gives her and her one-man band dad Kata Maduli an art lesson: 101 on how to draw her signature “perfectly imperfect” hibiscus flower."
