What first brought you to Alaska:

I first came to Alaska because I born here in August 2, 1971. 

How has Alaska captured your heart?

Alaska has captured my heart because I grew up here in Alaska and I have never traveled out of Alaska and now I’m 49 years old and still never traveled out of Alaska and this is my home.

Describe just one of your favorite “Best Days” or  “Most memorable experiences”  in Alaska. 

My most memorable experience was when I was growing up in Togiak with my mom and dad Marie & Adam Arnariak.  They showed me how God created Mother Nature so beautiful to go out camping, fishing, hunting and the most beautiful thing she ever taught me was to make native crafts. 

What in Life do you know for sure?

What I know for sure in life is it is beautiful that there’s parents that love very much. Sisters and  brothers and God’s creation he made us and created us on this earth to trust and believe that his son died on the cross for our sins and save our life.
