I'm currently a student at Boise State University pursuing a degree in Special Edu/early childhood studies. As an inspiring educator and cultural diversity enthusiast, I wanted to write a book that allows readers to picture living on a beach as many kids have never been to a beach before. I wanted to touch on that cultural aspect as a Pacific Islander as well as to promote the concept of cultural diversity especially in the early childhood years.

  • This is a story of a young island girl born and raised on the island of Saipan. I wanted to write this story in a way that will get young readers engaged on the concept of cultural diversity. I considered the fact that not many kids have ever been to a beach, while others have never seen snow. As an islander, I feel that being raised by a beach, not to mention a tropical island, plays a huge impact on my culture. Thus, I wanted to share more about my island as it seems that Pacific Islanders are often underrepresented especially when teaching about cultural diversity to early childhood years.
