The Puka Project: Sonya and Naia Niess of Pukalani, Maui


In the words of her auntie Gail who nominated her, "Sonya is a beautiful, smart, humble goddess and mother to sweet angel Naia. Her level of love and grace will blow your mind!"

Two years ago, Naia was born with a severe and rare form of epilepsy that causes traveling seizures through her brain. The seizures have inhibited her from developing communicative and motor skills and she suffers in pain that specialists do not understand. Her loving parents have tried everything to make their daughters life better and not much has worked.


This summer, their GoFund me campaign helped them take Naia to Ecuador for a month long intensive treatment in hopes to help balance her brainwaves and begin to heal.
