I'm a Filipino immigrant. I was a renter my entire life, until my husband and I saved enough for our first home in Nob Hill, Mililani. I provide care for my aging father, as we raise our two kids and pay for costly daycare. I’m still paying back my school loans. These are the everyday realities that root me in my work and in challenging the status quo. I love Hawaii and I want to raise my family here - but I am tired of working hard and still feeling broke.
I refuse to accept this as the reality of our future generation. And I’ll be honest with you, I struggled to make a decision about running for office again. But as I reflected on it, I still feel that many of our state leaders are not doing enough for everyday working families. I am tired of our legislators staying silent - or worse, ignoring issues that impact our future, our health, and our quality of life.
I want to make a difference, and I am going to pour my whole heart into this campaign. All I ask is your support - together, we can build the future our kids deserve.
