Hapa Girls

I first heard the word Hapa in Hawaii.  Kameryn and I were taking surf lessons at Hans Hedemann in Waikiki and our instructor called us Hapa girls.  He told us that Hapa was a word that referred to people who are half Asian.  I’ve used the word ever since and love being from two completely different cultures! (I am half Japanese and half Irish)
