Deep inside each of us is the story of our past. Lexi from California found out how her past and present connect through the AncestryDNA test. Lexi fell in love with the Hawaiian Islands years ago and visits annually.
“When I go to Hawaii, it feels like home.” She didn’t understand how deep that connection really was until recently—after she got her AncestryDNA results back and she saw that she had Polynesian in her ethnicity estimate. Lexi explains, “My dad was Chinese but he must have been more mixed than I thought, since Polynesian showed up in me and not my mom.”
Each time she visits Hawaii she is frequently asked if she is a local and this past trip, she was proud to say, “Yes, I am Polynesian.” A connection only DNA could reveal.
“Now, knowing what I know, little things have caught my eye about the history of this culture and a region I now connect with in more than one way. Thank you, AncestryDNA—it’s so fascinating.”
