This was something I could not pass up. I opened the application to be a 2018 Houston-Chiba Youth Ambassador and realized this was a life-changing opportunity. I would be in a Japanese community for two weeks, learning about Japan, a modern country deep into its ancient roots, while sharing my own Houstonian culture. The results did not disappoint.
