Swimming Again in a New World
I chose this six-word autobiography, because, while it is by no means all-ecompassing, I think it says a lot about me. I was born and raised in Japan and lived there most of my life. My two year stay in Guatemala was my first time, aside from a year in England as a child, to truly experience life in a foreign country and a different culture. It was a very exciting time for me. Having said that, there were things I found difficult to adjust to. Now, I am in the States, another country that is different from the one I am used to, and I am experiencing the same excitement and occasional unease that comes with being in a new place.
