Vicky K. Murakami-Tsuda é a Gerente de Comunicações do Museu Nacional Japonês Americano.

Ela é uma “auto-denominada” Yonsei do Sul da Califórnia que vem de uma grande família estendida. Há muito tempo atrás (quando ela tinha mais tempo livre e energia), ela também era uma artista que explorava a cultura e história nipo-americanas através da sua arte. Agora, quando não está no trabalho ela passa a maior parte do tempo curtindo boa culinária, visitando o Facebook, jogando boliche, passeando pela Disneylândia e lendo.

Hopefully, you’ll find them enjoyable, or at ...
