This is a story of Nami and I coming together from the moment we met to casually became a business partner to agreed on expanding awareness of health and beauty to our community as a way of promoting internal and true happiness.
When I moved to Eugene, I enrolled Lillian to Japanese Immersion School here in Eugene, and one of the reason why we moved here was for this school. I wanted Lillian to continue learning Japanese, since we moved from there just a year ago in 2015. One of the first Japanese mom I met at the school was in fact Nami. She was into volunteering at school, organizing international intern students program caring for everything and everywhere.
I still remember her bright eyes and energetic approach welcoming me to the school. Instantly she asked if I wanted to host an intern student from Japan. With no hesitation I said “Yes!” Then I remember writing her this very appropriate Japanese letter saying that I was very excited to be in Eugene at this school, am a licensed acupuncturist looking to grow here, wanting to be part of community, and that I hope she can accept me as a long term friendship. Maybe I put a little magic spell there, now I am thinking about it, and wondering if she remembers that email…!
She continues to be so helpful in all occasions, like my opening of a first small rented room at a salon, she brought me orchid flower, when my last baby was born, she brought me traditional Japanese food that I was craving, and supported me coming to see me for regular acupuncture sessions. She trusted me with treating her daughter too. Then, one day, she shared that she was going into beauty school and was studying to become a professional esthetician.
My heart was over joy with excitement to have her in this entrepreneur field of making it work for ourselves, being our own boss, creating a life that we love, serving community with our love and talent. So super excited.
