Camp Fire Rule

Leave it better than you found it. This means you need to take care of those around you and build up the support for your communities as well.

There is so many opportunities to help bring more support to your life, and the lives of others. All we need to do is take a step in the direction of our goals, and help others work towards their goals too.

How to achieve this goal, we can take the time to talk to them and build plan of how we can support them in achieving or moving towards their goal. In return they should also wish or try to also be supportive for you as well.

The key is this is not just for friendships, romance, but also family. Sometimes we must move on by knowing our own value, which should be the high. You are amazing.

Always take time to reflect and grow your plans and achieve your goals.

Be Brave, Be Yourself

Being yourself can be a topic of concern for many people. “I’m not ‘good’ enough”, “I’m too x”, or “they are more y than me”.

This comparative stage is a key element to our downfall in happiness and acceptance towards ourselves. The problem with this is we will always find another person to compare with which will only make us feel less than perfect.

If you take the time to realize you are amazing, because there is no one who can be you. There is no way anyone can be you, just like you can never be them.

Everyone, even the person you are comparing yourself to, has feelings of being less than perfect. It is time to take back your own happiness by taking the time to reflect on the positives in your life.

Do you enjoy what you do? Have great friends? Have a supporting and loving family? Even if the answer is no, there is something you are grateful for, and it could be anything. Your reason for happiness is not up to anyone but yourself.

So, take some time today to reflect, recall, and regroup your thought. You are worth more than you think. You are amazing and talented. I look forward to seeing you achieve your greatness.

If you need someone, reach out and spread your wings to soar.

What is MahuWahine?

This is a common question, but MahuWahine is a newish term used to refer to Transgender Women. This is from the terms in Hawaiian.

Mahu – is a term that has been used as a derogatory term for gay men and drag queens. This can loosely translate to men with sweetness. When translated from English it comes to a name for the devil.

Wahine – is the term of women or female in Hawaiian. the counterpart is Kane which means male or men.

So MahuWahine as a term can be translated as – men with sweetness women. Thus, a transgender woman (male-to-female).

So why use this as a company name? Well, the recapture of terms that may be “offensive” needs to be done somehow. So I am, okay with taking this challenge directly to showcase the importance of the Mahu community.

As an intersex person, who wishes to be themselves the only way to be normal may be to fit into the Transgender Box, this can lead to concerns of feeling disconnected, because we know the truth in our own head. The social climate still does not allow us to fully express ourselves openly. So wearing derogatory terms with pride and honor, can help some of us feel connected.


So the concept of MahuWahine for the me is not one of pain, even though it reminds me of the past pain. Remembering the past has helped me learn to grow into the “strong” person I feel I am today. So the main reason for the use of MahuWahine as the Brand Name is actually fully about remembering my roots even with other cultures. It also pushes me to have hope for a better future. Be I called tumtum or bakla, it is all good because I openly welcome all these terms because I will not hide from who I am, nor will I hide what I am. I am proud to be myself. If you are are please stand up and wave your banner or colors for all to see.
