I was born in the Netherlands but my parents are from Japan so when I was a child I had to attend both Dutch and Japanese school. I really disliked going to the Japanese school because it was on Saturdays. Six days of school is not cool. Keep reading Yuki’s story.
Now I’m so thankful I’m able to speak, read and write Japanese. It was surprising to me that so many people were interested in both the Japanese language and the culture. I remember people asking me to write their names in Japanese. When I was in primary school, middle school, high school, college and now at work. I felt a little proud I was able to that. And I continue to feel proud.
