I really enjoyed reading the articles “Kikokushijo: returnees to a country not yet ready for them” and “Returnees’ experiences drive a will to give something back” [by Teru Clavel, Learning Curve, May 5 and 12].

I was born in Japan but moved to Nairobi, Kenya, when I was 3 months old. I spent my whole life in a British international school, until university, where I completed my bachelor’s in psychology at the University of York, U.K. I am currently doing my master’s in Munich, Germany. I never attended a Japanese school (aside for a few months of kindergarten) and so although my Japanese understanding is of native level, my reading and writing skills in Japanese are hardly sufficient.

In a time of both misinformation and too much information, quality journalism is more crucial than ever.
