Being Hawaiian and Filipina is a huge part of what makes me, me. I try to incorporate my culture in all aspects of my life; From crafting and interior decorating, to fashion, family and education... I love to represent my pride and pass on the knowledge of my heritage. There are a couple parts of my culture and roots that I would love to get back to, like Hawaiian Language & Tagalog, and Polynesian Dancing.
Although I'm a Pacific Islander, I was never given the chance to truly grow up in Hawaii or the Philippines. The limited amount of time I spent in Hawaii as a child, is forever etched into my mind though. I can still remember specific details of those days long ago. I know I'll always have that connection to the Hawaiian Islands through my blood, as well as those precious memories.
I was born and raised in the Pacific NW where I met the love of my life. It's here that we decided to start our family. We were blessed with a beautiful baby girl named Kiani... who was born on the 4th of July. As you can imagine, she is quite the firecracker ;) It's not so bad here. Besides the weather, it's a really great place to call home! There is so much natural beauty and endless things to do.
