Journalism as Vocation (Spanish)

Transcripts available in the following languages:

(Spanish) I found a job more or less…I wasn’t thinking, but it seemed that for my character…because I wasn’t like other Japanese. I am not so, how can I say, everyone says “you are not Japanese.” [Perhaps because] I am neither timid nor shy. It seems that I am not afraid to speak with a person whom I don’t know. And I question everything, unlike other Japanese who think, “if I question this it will be bad.” Not openly, although it makes one mad, it doesn’t bother me.
