First starting from Squidoo, I hope to continue with Hub Pages. About a year ago I've started writing and find it to be quite therapeutic. I am a third generation Japanese American who lives in Hawaii. I have come to appreciate my Japanese culture and love to visit Japan when I do get a chance. I love to travel and to get away from the same routine of everyday life. The vacation breaks are wonderful. I find the articles and questions here interesting and can't wait to get started. Shy and introverted, I hope to challenge myself and try to move forward in whatever I choose to do and learn from others on my journey in LIFE.
