Ohana means family and family means everyone’s life gets blogged

The New York Ohana has been a big part of my story. I’ve been asked for more info about them, so here you go!

The Quyn character has been played by Quyn, a New York Times VJ. She recently went on a spontaneous solo trip to Paris to paint, eat croissants and take photos. She’s a talented artist with a practical side. A mutual friend once described Quyn as “someone who will never fail.” I couldn’t say it better myself. Quyn bravely moved to New York without a job, she came armed with a degree, hard work ethic and a determination to make it. Has she ever!

James is played by James, a kinda big deal NFL editor/manager/coordinator. He loooooooooves the 49ers. He claims if you prick him, he bleeds red and gold. I’ve never confirmed this, but I have seen the gold jacket he keeps in his apartment. Don’t believe him if he tells you I tried it on. I DID NOT! He calls his lightweight bicycle the ghost. His pastimes include coming up with clever hashtags, picking up girls at naked yoga class and trash-talking Seahawks fans. We’re all waiting for him to move to Cali.

Jenga tournaments are serious business.

Navani stars as Navani. She’s a writer and radio show host among other things. She is a regular contributor to Latina magazine. Navani recently jetted off to London for a week just because someone asked if she wanted to. (Spoiler: Correct answer to that question is always yes.) Navani’s talents include bio writing, knowing when popular artists and authors are speaking at events and running for the G train in sneakers, heels and flip-flops alike.

I’m a journalist, nutritionist, doting auntie, one-time bobsledder, and wannabe health nut (who loves chocolate and pizza too much to fully commit). I don't want you to think my life is perfect. It's not.

Let's talk it out
