Auli'i Cravalho Wants To Develop a Sunscreen That Won't Harm The Reef

Auli’i Cravalho made headlines as Moana, and we know she’s going to be amazing in NBC’s Rise.

Another thing she’s kind of amazing at? Science!

Did you know that while Auli’i was recording the voice of Moana, she was taking an insanely hard science class?

Taught by Gail Ishimoto, the teacher revealed to Honolulu magazine that Auli’i was breaking through barriers.

“She opened up a whole new world for us, working on a project on how sunscreen affects our coral reefs here. We’d start at 7am and work until 2am.”

Auli’i added that it was something she was really passionate about.

“Someday when I’m not running around, when I’m not getting on planes 24/7, I would like to develop a sunscreen that wouldn’t harm the reef.”

While Rise on the horizon, Auli’i isn’t ruling out science or even law for a future career.

“I’m planning on continuing my education. I’m not sure about shifting focus to this industry—I was planning on law and specifically focusing on the biological field. Maybe I can do both?”
