About

Hello! I'm a yonsei from canada. Technically speaking, I am a quarter Japanese and a quarter Chinese, but I was given no knowledge or exposure to my Chinese side, and I have always identified as a Japanese-Canadian. I am half caucasion from my mum's side, and thus have always experienced a little confusion in regards to my self identification. Recentally, I returned from an exchange to Japan (which consisted of visting Hiroshima, the city my great-grandparent's came from), and have made an effort to rediscouver and reclaim some of my culture. I hope this community will help me do so in a respectful manner!

Nikkei interests

  • community history
  • family stories
  • Japanese/Nikkei food
  • Japantowns
  • rediscovering my culture in a respectful and appropriate way, as well as coming to terms with my idenity.
