Looks fully East Asian to me (or Hawaiian).

Didn’t know that she had European in here. She never seemed Eurasian/biracial to me.

Very beautiful woman btw.

She’s gorgeous.

Thought she also had Spanish ancestry with Hawaiian and such. Didn’t expect English.

I will give you a tip regarding her ancestry. It is too hard to find her grandparents as of now. This was her great-great-grandmother Kaleiho’opio Kellett: https://familysearch.org/tree/#view=ancestor&person=KGCN-DV1 & https://www.facebook.com/223633344361719/photos/a.224831960908524.56352.223633344361719/764143500310698/
