I couldn’t have asked for a better life. With the support of my loving family, along with faith and perseverance, I set out to achieve the American Dream.
I have an amazing husband and beautiful twin daughters who have always encouraged me to pursue my dreams. Without them and my parents, who instilled in me a heart for God and a desire to achieve, I could not have come this far.
I’ve pursued many career opportunities over the years as a business owner and stateswoman. However, serving in the United States Air Force has been the greatest highlight of all. I consider myself a true Patriot who believes full-heartedly that America’s greatest days are ahead of her and that our voices here in Hawai’i will resonate with hers, stronger than ever before.
I believe that in order for our voices to resonate in Washington, D.C., we must speak loudly against career politicians whose voices have appeased the status quo in Congress. In our Presidential Caucuses, voters spoke against the status quo; they’re fed up and tired of politics as usual. Even locally, we are feeling the effects of an apathetic Congress. Therefore, I believe that we need a new voice, one that is passionate about solving the unique challenges we face as an island community, one that can send a resounding message that, We the People, of Hawai’i, are ready to usher in a new dawn.
My voice comes from a passion for our people, our culture and our lands. I’m not a career politician or an attorney; I’m just a citizen like you who is eager to be a messenger for the people of Hawai’i. We have to be absolutely sure that the politicians who we elect to represent us in Congress will have Hawai’i’s best interests at heart especially.
Hawaii is so unique. Beyond her natural beauty, diverse peoples from around the world have settled here. How interesting is it then that Hawai’i, a true melting pot in the Pacific, came together with one voice against old party ideologies in our recent caucus? Yes, we can come together!
I served my country in the Air Force so that my voice could be heard. It hasn’t been easy, especially because of partisan strongholds in government. It seems that politicians today, care more about party loyalty rather than for their constituents. They are starting to realize that voters care little about conservatism or liberalism, right or left, red or blue; they care only about how we can solve the issues of our time. No longer can career politicians pull the wool over our eyes by clinging so tightly to biased ideologies. The issues we face in America today are dire and they must be solved, and that will require all of us to work together.
