Q1: What was your first encounter with Japan?

When I was a child, my dad worked in Japan. The stationery, crayons and stickers he brought back from Japan were the first main encounter with Japan. I have been in love with Japanese stationery ever since. After I graduated from high school, I came to Japan and started my studies and journey of exploration.

Q2: Please state your motto in life and why you have chosen it.

“I like the night. Without the dark, we’d never see the stars.” Not everything goes smoothly, whether it be studies, work, or your own life. But as long as you don't forget your original intention, stick to your dreams and work hard, there will be a day that all things get better. I believe that everything experienced is for a better tomorrow.

Q3 : Over your career, what achievement are you the proudest of?

To be honest, I don’t think there is anything I can achieve only by myself. Without the cooperation of the team, the support from managers and family, many things may not come to be. I always feel that everything is mutual. We are cooperating with people while getting help from others.

Q4 : What are your goals during your time in Japan, your current position or in life?

To create a good culture and environment as much as possible. I hope my colleagues happily come to work every day and they can see their growth at work. As a mother, to make time to stay with my children as much as possible. At the same time to express the right message to them — work hard for what you like.
