Call me Sha. OH SHA! Or even Merirei. But if you know what’s good for you, you’ll avoid using my first name in it’s entirety.

30-something & inked. I have it in my head that someday, I’ll Palau’s most heavily-tattooed professional. It seems like a nice goal to aspire to..

Palauan-American. Parents made their way to the States in the mid-1970s and forgot to leave. Instead, they met and had a couple of snarky-ass brown girls.

Oregonian, born and bred. More importantly, I’m a Portland Girl. PDX. NoPo. Located conveniently between Jantzen Beach and Lloyd Center.

Resident of the Republic of Palau.

People still ask why I moved here, and some day I find myself asking the same question.

The answer is simply: I dunno.

Lots of reasons and nothing specific, all at once. I never set foot in Palau until I was 28… And my curiosity got the better of me, I suppose.

Some days I love it. Other days I hate it. And I haven't the slightest clue what I'll be doing, or where I'll be going next.
