Hostess/student at the Kapiolani Community College
Eww. Got a boyfriend?
Are you a surfer girl?
Used to be.
Regular or goofy?
What’s your favorite beach in the whole world?
What was it like modeling in Japan?
It was a great experience and it opened my eyes to a lot of new things. It's hard though coming from such a small island and being thrown in to a huge city like Tokyo.
Last dirty joke you told?
I heard they came up with a new pill to cure lesbians…it’s called trycoxagen.
If you could go on a date with any pro surfer who would it be?
Mr. Pipeline Gerry Lopez.
Worst pickup line you’ve ever heard?
Do I know you? You look a lot like my next girlfriend.
Secret and/or hidden talent?
That, my friends, is a secret!
