  • I was just another 9 to 5 office worker in Japan.

  • One day I woke up and thought

  • I needed a change

  • but I was told so many times

  • that I wasn't gonna make it

  • You're gonna fail

  • You are too young

  • You are a woman

  • You are Japanese

  • The day I arrived in Vancouver

  • I knew I wanted to live here

  • "This is it"

  • It was like a beautiful dream where one minute I was walking through a modern city

  • and moments later being completely surrounded by nature

  • The ocean, the mountains

  • and the forest all together in one place

  • I wanted to see things that I've never seen

  • I wanted to create a business where people would have the freedom to be themselves

  • and express their passions

  • I wanted to meet people from diverse backgrounds with different points of view

  • I wanted

  • freedom

  • The place I live today

  • Where diversity rules

  • Where you are allowed to be yourself

  • Vancouver

  • Who's gonna change your life?

  • Who's responsible for your life?
