It is just part of me, I grew up with my grandparents – they were very proud to be Japanese. I was always very secure in being Japanese and Japanese American. The roots and the values—my family was very proud of their samurai roots. And so they emphasized honor, integrity, your word has to be relied upon, how you conduct yourself, it reflected upon everybody else—not just your family—pride in trying to accomplish things. I think the Japanese roots are also the reason why education was so emphasized.
