My name is Cindy; my middle name is Yukiko. I was very lucky to have been born in Japan and lived there for a couple years before returning to the States. I’m so happy to be as close to my Japanese relatives as well as my American relatives. Pictured here are me (left), my sister (middle), and friend (right) when we attended one of the many fun festivals.
