Ken Duit's family left Vietnam when he was 10 years old, relocating to St. Louis, Missouri. They moved one more time to Grand Rapids, Michigan before finally settling in Holland, Michigan where Ken grew up with his two brothers and three sisters.
Due to a bout of polio at the age of one which left him with just his left lower leg in good working order, Ken now walks with the help of a cane. It never stopped him from persuing his dreams though, and two days after graduating from high school in 2000, he arrived in Hawaii to attend school. He attended three universities at one time and earned his bachelor's degree in 18 months. He held numerous jobs to support himself. He was a taxi driver, an insurance salesman, a Cutco knife salesman, he sold Quixtar, he delivered grocery to the elderly, he managed a coffee shop, he twisted balloons in Waikiki, and more.
Ken is married and has a son and a daughter. He met his wife Keiko in an accounting class at HPU. He said that meeting her was the best thing that happened there. Ken has already come a long way since first arriving here, and now at the age of 28 he is the new owner of the Garden of Fortune in Chinatown. He is one amazing guy. He wants to call these photos the "before" pictures. I'll return later to shoot the "after" pictures after Ken has had time to actualize his vision. I can't wait.
