I'm an American of mixed ancestry. Growing
up in Hawaii, I was a "Poi Dog," who felt special
to have different cultural backgrounds.
I love my Chinese family for their conservative
nature and my Hawaiian family for their loving,
fun filled nature. I love both for their FOOD.

Hawaiian, Chinese, English
