Mom is Sherri Ah Puck of Aston Maui Banyan Guest Services, and dad is Frankie Ah Puck, a driver with The Limo Company.

The family lives in Kihei, and Mystic-Ann attends kindergarten at Kihei Elementary School where she loves going to school!

Mystic-Ann has been dancing hula for a little over a year with Halau Kekuao‘kala‘au‘iliahi.

Dad shares, “Mystic asked us to have her training wheels removed, it took her less than two hours to learn to ride the bike. That was one of my greatest moments with her!”

Mom shares, “Mystic is very friendly and full of Aloha. She’s always saying hi to everyone, and she reminds me that every day is a good day and to be happy!”
