Brief excerpt from interview: At first I was a little self conscious about the way I dress or the way I speak . . . I've kind of adapted to [Oʻahu] but I haven't really changed myself. I try to blend in instead of trying to stand out sometimes. Being from a rural area kind of hinders your outside thinking.You only know what's within that area. So coming here I was able to expand that, and I was able to expand my writing. I could only write from a rural person's perspective before, and now I can incorporate the two perspectives into one and I can understand where people come from that perspective and from my own perspective.
