Why Chanson Rego left Hawaii

“I was born and raised in Hawaii, on the island of Kauai. I had to move with my family away from our roots due to the high cost of living. Everyone who rents (out their homes) wants you to pay their mortgage plus a paycheck each month. It’s sad to see friends and family move away while foreign investors buy all the property and jack up all the prices.”
