Born in Honolulu (Kapiolani Hospital) my parents struggled to make ends meet.  At the age of 3 and my brother at 5, my family relocated to San Francisco  My parents, fueled by aspirations and undeterred by their modest means and the absence of good jobs, sought to escape the family strife and limited job prospects  they faced at home.  

Despite my young age, I was very aware of the disparity in how we were perceived and  treated on the mainland.  Strangers would mock, belittle and disrespect us, judgments based purely on our skin color.   It got worse during my elementary school years.  Among a predominantly caucasian student body, only myself, an Asian and an American Indian student stood out.  The unprovoked taunts, threats,  bullying and fighting  caused my parents to worry for my safety.  But over time, even though I was outnumbered, I got stronger.  I started to notice other students getting bullied, even some of my friends.  That triggered a fierce protective spark in me.  Always, the bullies were older and twice our size. Every fiber in me resisted the wrong being done to other kids that were much weaker.  I found myself stepping in, fighting for myself and trying to shield others. That innate compulsion to protect others  that were weaker and in need has stayed with me throughout my adult life.  Today, it shapes my laser focused dedication and resolve as an attorney, championing for those who are subject to injustice and need a voice.
