Prior to starting my life in Hawaii, I had left Tokyo and moved to Guam and lived there for 3 years due to my husband’s work. I was pregnant with my first child, my daughter, but this did not change how I dealt with my work. Believe it or not, even while I was struggling with contractions in the hospital, I was diligent enough to complete proofreading English and Japanese newsletters for DFS Galleria, my client at the time.
After delivery, I continued to work on PR projects, and in addition, I started a flower class at home leveraging my European flower design license. It was rewarding to see Japanese wives enjoy learning different flower design other than Japanese style.
