    My Vote, my Duty, my Privilege!


    Because I am traveling abroad it was a little bit tricky to cast my vote and get the absentee ballot. I even called back to my beloved Home, Hawaii to be sure that I receive it on time. For me as a new proud Citizen of the United States of America it means so much that I am able to vote even thousands of miles away from home. To vote for me as a former refugee is not just a Right which I received as I became a US Citizen but also a great privilege and honor. Every times I vote there are tears in my eyes, because for me that special piece of paper becomes the symbol of Freedom itself. Thanks everyone who are voted and special thanks to all the volunteers. Thank You: PuakeaJutka
