||I am half Japanese and Half-Filipino. I was raised in a Filipino household and frequently made trips to the Philippines during my youth. Over the years into my adult life, I lost touch with my Filipino upbringing. With my mother moving to the mainland, this became more apparent.
I realize now as I work for KIKU-TV; a Television station which broadcasts both Japanese and Filipino programming, that I should rekindle my culture and upbringing. My goal is to become active in the Filipino community and embrace that part of my heritage.
