To many, I am an ordinary white American girl. But to those who know me, my skin conceals the secret of my Asian heritage. I spent my first 17 years growing up in Hong Kong and Taiwan. Crossing oceans was an ordinary part of life— I learned to fly before I learned to walk! In summer 2014 I relocated to Oahu, Hawaii, the island nicknamed “the gathering place”. This palm tree speckled oasis in the middle of the vast Pacific Ocean is home to people from all over the Asia-Pacific rim. I crossed this ocean to discover the God of the Polynesian peoples and the God of every international student who migrates here for college. It seemed an appropriate time to start this blog. I invite you to join me in crossing oceans and bridging cultures.
