Happa

Erin Ayako Witt
Class of 2014
Sociology

Happa is Japanese-Hawaiian slang for someone who is part Asian and part something else. Being half Japanese and half white lets me be a part of two different worlds. I can see the world and experience life in two different cultures. Being a half-blood gives me new eyes to see the world and experience life.
