how to live up my whole life, inspiring people, connecting people. And I am so passionate about making tomorrow better than today.
I believe connecting people like one to another is of deep importance, where each person shares their stories and ideas. This is when innovations appear and this is when ones see their life differently. I will be there to provide an opportunity that consequently influences our lives and help make tomorrow better than today.
To achieve my passion (provide an opportunity to influence ones' lives), I started being a TED translator in 2010, I have currently been co-organizing TEDxMeieki, and I just co-founded a meetup group called 'Step'. The heart of all of these comes from the idea that I just want to make tomorrow better than today.

taking a step.
Influences & Inspirations, the reasons I am into TED.
