Half Japanese in Hawaii | TERRACE HOUSE Cheri Lavoie (シェリー) Talks Reality TV | Meet a Halfie – Hawaii Video



Cheri is Miss Hawaii Island 2017, Miss Ala Moana 2018, and one of the cast members on the hit Netflix Japanese reality TV shows, “Terrace House: Aloha State”. Born and raised in Hawaii, Cheri is an “OG” hapa (mixed Caucasian, Asian), and she lived in Japan for 1 year during her elementary school years. She learned Japanese just from that!

Meet a Halfie on Hapa Hour aims to hear about the experiences of a mixed Asian person (otherwise known as Hapa) in the world today. The word “Hafu” or ハーフ in the Japanese language, refers to someone who is “half Japanese” ethnically, and “half something else”. Hapa does not necessarily include someone who is Half Korean and Half Japanese (since the two are both “Asian”), but the term Hafu can be used to describe anyone who is mixed Japanese and something else.

This series is more or less becoming “Hafu Hour”, since I know many mixed Japanese people, but I hope you all can still learn something and possibly relate!

  1. Thanks Cheri for doing the video! Anyone else joined the bandwagon and watched Terrace House?
    Also, the main camera (2 shot of us) is very grainy, and sound is bad, so I want to apologize for that. Setting up 3 cameras by yourself is HARD.
