Lisa Kiyomi Uyeda

My full name is Lisa Kiyomi Uyeda.  My first name was given to me by my parents, but my middle name was carefully selected for me by my dear Bachan.  When I was born, my Bachan approached my parents and stated she would be selecting my Japanese name.  After thinking long and hard, she selected ‘Kiyo’. Derived from her birth name Kiyoko, and added the female ‘mi’ to the end.  I am honored to have been given such a beautiful Japanese name that connects me not only to my Japanese heritage but also to my Bachan.

Based on this original
