HI, I’M HANALEI!
Most kids are asked, “what do you want to be when you grow up?” But I wasn’t asked that, I was asked, “what do you want to be now?” This question changed my perspective on what I could do at such a young age, and instead of thinking I had to wait to become a fashion designer until i was 20 or 30, I decided to do it now and started designing at the age of 7 years old. (I’m currently 12).
I was one year old when I started traveling. I left the USA to travel abroad with my parents. They wanted me to learn from real life, not from a text book.
In that time we have visited and lived in 6 continents and over 36+ countries. Most people think I have grown up different than other kids my age but I think it’s pretty normal. I’ve attended schools in countries like Brazil, Panama, Peru, Mexico, and Indonesia. I’ve had the opportunity to see some incredible places and meet amazing people.
