She grew up on a farm, and according to her, most people in Waianae lead a low lifestyle due to the challenging economic situation in the neighbourhood.
Baseball was not her favourite sport when she was young. Often, she would chase butterflies around because it was more fun to her than playing baseball. But, with her parent’s encouragement and regular training, she finally fell in love with the sport at the age of 10 years.
