Margaret Oshita oral history interview, part 3 of 8, March 17, 2005
Oshita talks about the sports she was involved with and the recreational activities during her childhood, where she was intrigued with basketball and swimming and her family would have picnics to "talk stories". She would also correspond with her future husband, who was living on Kauai, while she attended McKinley High School. She would go to a lot of movies and get involved with music, starting with the violin and then playing the cello. After her high school years, she would attend business school, learning to be a receptionist and becoming valedictorian. After this, she talks about knowledge of the wars happening overseas and where she was during the attacks on Pearl Harbor. After the attacks, Hawaii would be put on curfew, and have to black out their car headlights and windows, even if just playing cards.
