- Bringing people together
- Empowering people
- Being a good role mode and teacher
- Learning new perspectives
I am really passionate about supporting communities, so I spent a lot of time working with people to keep them alive. I spend a lot of time in Japantown connecting young professionals with the area and its history. I spend time as a role model for a buddhist youth group in Sunnyvale and Los Angeles. I'm also a lead volunteer and coordinator for Karma Kitchen.
When not doing the above I love to travel. I've been throughout Europe and a few parts of Asia. Seeing both tourist spots and ways average people live their lives gives me more ways of feeling connected to would be strangers and appreciation for the impact of my life. Now I just need to find a sweet travel buddy :)
