Hanayakara is one of my favorite groups to watch. This multi-talented group is comprised of young girls ranging in age from 6 to 18. Their energy and skill is simply amazing and I am always inspired after watching them perform. This video is just a small glimpse of their performance at the 25th Okinawan Festival (2007) at the Kapiolani Park.
Who is Champuru?Aloha, I'm Donna, known everywhere on the Internet as "Champuru." I was born and raised in Hawaii. I'm a Christian. I'm married to my best friend of 18 years, we struggled with infertility and successfully conceived via IVF (and by the grace of God!) in 2008. I resigned from my coveted "secure" government job to be a work-at-home mom to my 3-year-old daughter. Using my degree in Information Technology and the skills obtained in the marketplace, I started my own business. Now, I work from home, taking clients on a part-time basis, working in my PJ's while the little one sleeps. Life isn't always easy, but it's all good.
