I am very upfront and forward, so before I get bashed I’ll say it first. I’m unemployed and have been off/on throughout the years, been on government assistance a long time ago, I’ve gone to college, but will finish if the chance arises, I’ve volunteered, been volun-told, and done side jobs to make extra income. With that said, don’t get it twisted, I’m neither ignorant, stupid, or lazy. I look at my situation like many others, trying to survive, however we can.
I've been with my husband for 11 years but we just got married in 2014. We have a cabbage patch family with his 4 kids previously, my 2 previously, our 1 together, with only 3 of them at home and still in school.
My mission as a delegate is to uncover many more truths about Hawaii's past/present and recover a lot of what we lost, mostly our lands. While I may not have a recognizable face/name, I'm strong willed, capable, and won't wrong our people. I believe we can maintain and grow our relationships with the communities of the world while reclaiming our lands and culture using what has carried on throughout time and all hardship, Aloha. Aloha binds us together as a people as we share our love with everyone.
