Kina's Story

The summer after their sophomore year, Kina and her friend found jobs at a fish cannery in Alaska to help pay for their college tuitions. On her very first day of work, Kina was assigned to clean the conveyor belts, with little instruction or safety training. The events that ensued changed her life forever.

Due to the lack of an enforced safety lockout program, the conveyor belt was turned on as Kina worked below. In a matter of seconds, her life was in grave danger. This workplace accident resulted in the loss of Kina's arm, but she survived and went on to become a safety awareness advocate that inspires global audiences to make safety personal.
