My story is that I have a natural talent for overcoming adverse situations, championing the difficult people, and I have created bridges between worlds that seem opposing or just not connected. I am mixed race of Japanese and American heritage. I use my natural skills now to motivate others to move beyond outer and self-imposed limitations, to express their natural gifts and be powerful and contribute, participate and give back to the world by doing so.
