Nima of the Month

roberto (Lima, Peru)

Roberto Oshiro Teruya is a Sansei Peruvian. He began writing for Discover Nikkei in June, contributing stories to Itadakimasu 2! as well as stories about his family and his identity.

[ES] Cuando navegaba por internet en una red social, veía que mis amigos nikkei siempre compartían artículos publicados en una página llamada Discover Nikkei, de esa manera empecé a entrar a este sitio, veía muchas publicaciones de nikkei de otras nacionalidades, con muchas experiencias similares a la mía, lo que me llamó mucho la atención fue la sección Itakakimasu, donde la gente contaba su experiencia alrededor de la comida, que en casa venían de nuestros abuelos, de generación en generación, hasta llegar a nosotros, en ella animaban a escribir su historia alrededor de la comida, cualquier persona podría escribir, es por eso que me animé y mandé un artóculo, seguí mandando artículos sobre el mismo tema, pero Yoko me aconsejó que escribiera otro tipo de artículos, así pudiera contar todas mis experiencias, recuerdos, que se relacionaban con mis raíces y es así como cada vez me acerco a ellas y con lo que escribo, deseo que la gente también se sientan identificados.

[EN] Whenever I looked at social media on the Internet, I would see my Nikkei friends sharing articles from Discover Nikkei. That’s how I found out about the site. I saw a lot of articles about Nikkei of other nationalities with experiences similar to mine. One section that really caught my attention was Itadakimasu!, where people shared experiences related to food. At home, food customs and recipes were passed down by our grandparents, from generation to generation, until they reached us. Anybody can contribute to Discover Nikkei, so I decided to send in an article about food. I kept submitting articles on the same topic, but one day Yoko asked me to write other types of articles, so I began writing about experiences and memories related to my roots. I hope people can identify with what I write.
