People often ask me the great American question: “What are you?” They try guessing that I’m Cambodian, Black, Mexican, Brazilian, Chinese, Hawaiian, Filipino, Laotian, Viet, and even Korean. It’s one of my fave games, I don’t feel offended at all. What people fail to guess is who I REALLY am- Californian. Further, a SoCalette. So what is a SoCalette?
socalette [sō’·kàl-ĕt] NOUN
a. any female human who is native to the state of California, with ties either by birth or adoption to Southern region; generally a young adult who embraces Southern California culture.
b. a young female who continually tries to learn about California, while having ties to the Southern region.

I go by the SoCalette. This is where I share the best, wierdest, and tastiest things I learn about this great golden state. Enjoy!
