Hello my name is Rebecca. I am a half-Japanese, half-Dutch designer and marketer for an engineering firm and an aspiring home maker.

I live in Vancouver, Canada, where I was born and raised. I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Geography specializing in Resource Management, Environment, and Economy. However, I have had an interest in fashion and beauty since a young age.

You may be thinking what does hapa mean? The term hapa is used to describe a person of mixed ethnic heritage. It originates from the Hawaiian word for part or mixed. In Hawaii, the term is used to describe any person of mixed ethnic heritage, however, it is often associated with those that are half-Caucasian. To me, it is an easy way of identifying my ethnicity to others.

Come along with me on this journey we call life and learn what it means to live everyday as a hapa.
