ニューヨーク L校、Q 校（1986-98年）
Since graduating college, I have lived in both Hong Kong and Brazil and worked as an English teacher and a management consultant. I then moved back to NYC to pursue my true passion by attending culinary school. After culinary school, I worked as a pastry cook in NYC. I currently live in Somerville, MA with my husband, two daughters, and our yellow Labrador, Kuma.
Hoshuko taught me a different way to look at things, in that the Japanese educational system is very different from that of the US. It also exposed me to the culture and language of my mother and helped me to become truly bilingual. While I always dreaded doing all the extra homework and missing out on sports and sleepovers because I had an extra day of school, in the end I would not trade those Saturday mornings for anything. I am so very grateful to my mother for all of her help and for her forcing me to attend Hoshuko.
Keep at it! I know that there are so many reasons why you may want to quit, but know that there will come a day when you will thank your parents and teachers for the invaluable lessons they have helped you to learn by attending Hoshuko.
