With strong passion to bring unheard voices and fulfilling the unmet needs of women and disadvanted communities, I am earning experience as a labor/postpartum doula to better understand the needs and challenges women and their families face in supposedly happy moment of their lives so that we can redesign the experience that affect the rest of their lives.

Originally from Japan, being rased in very typical suburban homogeneous community to embark my career workign in Cambodia at the age of 22. Since then I worked, studied and lived in 7 countries in 4 continents around the world. Learned to speak English and Khmer.
