My name is Marc Seki and I am an active duty Infantrymen in the United States Army, I’m originally from Ewa Beach, HI. I am Asian, Hispanic, and European decent. I was born and raised Roman Catholic but never connected to that religion. I deployed to Afghanistan in 2011 and I experience some life changing events, I had a premonition that I would be stepping on an IED one week before it happened. Flash forward to 2016 I was in search for a religion that I could feel connected too. In May 2019 I found Ásatrú, the more I kept reading about the religion the more I got drawn to it. In June 2019 I officially converted to Ásatrú. I have found my connection to our Gods and Goddesses and will continue to learn and practice the old ways. I will do my best as Hawai’i’s ambassador and live honorably in our our Gods and Goddesses eyes.
