All week, HPR News is taking a closer look at who lives here in Hawaii. It’s a series we’re calling “Neighbors, An Island Story.” Earlier this week, HPR’s Molly Solomon reported on Hawaii’s unique brand of brain drain, exploring the reasons behind those who leave. Today, she introduces us to a growing group of young people who are looking to return to Hawaii and stick around for the long term.
