I was born and raised in Hawaii on a farm on the North Shore. I had the best childhood I could ever imagine with living in the country. My journey took me to college at UH Manoa and then onto Washington University in St. Louis. I stayed in the mainland for several years before returning home to raise my family. I wasn’t ever planning to return home but came back in protest really. Now that I’m here, I want to make Hawaii a better place for my children and contribute back to my community through volunteering and getting people to think!
