Abstract
Brief excerpt from interview: My weakness is when we are given free rein of what we want to write about, and narrowing down the topic for me is hard because there are so many different ideas that pop into my head. Do I go the easy route and go Hawaiian 'cause I know lots of Hawaiian people or do I want to challenge myself and look for someone who is Chuukese? or 'cause I don't know anyone when I have to go outside of my bubble to find somebody, which is what I did because I wanted to learn. I really liked my interview . . . I wanted to try a different culture just so I could learn about different aspects of it, and it was challenging because I didn't know where to start and so I just started asking people I knew . . . as a healthcare professional I'm supposed to be willing to just go and talk to everyone and I think it's comfortable when you're in a hospital setting or if you're in a healthcare setting that that's your job, but doing that in your own personal environment, it was hard for me. It was nerve-racking.
