Immigrant of the Day: Mazie Hirono - US Senator-Elect

Rate this Entry


MazieHirono
Japanese-born Mazie Hirono set several firsts on Tuesday
when she was elected as the junior Senator from Hawaii. Senator-elect Hirono is
the first Asian woman ever elected to the Senate. She is the first Japanese
immigrant ever elected to the Senate. She is the first Buddhist-American in the
Senate. And the sitting Congresswoman is already the first foreign-born Asian
woman to serve in the Congress.


Senator-elect Hirono was born 65 years ago in Fukushima, the
town now famous for the devastating combination earthquake, tsunami and nuclear
meltdown disaster from 2011. She immigrated to the US at the age of 8 and was
raised by a single mother in Hawaii. She naturalized in 1959, the year Hawaii
became a state. Congratulations Senator-elect Hirono!
