About Ferrah Chino

My name is Ferrah Chino Roberts, Chino originating from my Japanese Great-Grandmother means determination and purpose. My most recent nickname Ferrahchino started with me accepting who I am, the real start of my search for me. Being a mixed moonchild, I have cultural influences from my father, who is Japanese and African American and my mother, who is a mix of European ethnicities. It has taken a long time for me to truly appreciate my uniqueness and love who I am. I decided to use my name as my “brand" to live my Satya, truth. Born and raised in the PNW, I am a free spirit with a dash of sass! I have a huge heart that is truly my guiding light. Yoga has helped me listen to my inner voice and find my path. Combining yoga with photography is my way of helping other’s recognize the beauty inside of themselves and in the world around them. My goal is to empower others to take control of their lives and truly be happy.
