Today’s post is going to be short but important.
I stand in support of the Black Lives Matter movement. I stand in support of the change they, no we, stand for- of the equality that every person deserves.
As I watch all the riots and peaceful protests around the country I can’t just sit and be quiet. Of all times to speak up – I would argue NOW is the time to use your voice. All platforms we have – No matter how small or large are important.
Fight for what is right and you won’t regret it later.

Be safe out there.

Asian Pacific American Heritage Month ft. my mom+sister


May is Asian Pacific American (APA) Heritage Month! I’m really excited to do a post about it this year; I actually didn’t know APA Month was a thing until this year. Which is very sad. There needs to be more awareness about this month – Asian-Americans deserve to be represented.

As I said in my About Me page, I am Japanese-American; exactly half Japanese. I haven’t really written about being Japanese besides posts from my 2016 and 2018 trips to Japan as well as a post where I compare Japanese schools VS American schools. I’m hoping to change that as I’ve started discovering my Asian-American self a bit more this year:)

Anyway, I talk a bit about representation and my journey being Japanese-American in this post and also did a little Q&A my sister (who is also half-Japanese) and my mom (Japanese citizen) to celebrate! I hope you can relate – if you are also Asian-American – or learn something new.
