WHY BOTHER ?

Background?

 

I was born to a Japanese-Jewish"ish"(it's a long story)house hold in Shibuya, Tokyo in 1973.

Schools?

Stongeleigh-Burnham School, MA/1993

It's one of those boarding schools in "New England". 

It was like a fancy jail for spoiled teenagers.(at least for me)

Junior year :

AP art Level 6

Senior year :

Rhode Island School of Design Award 

Pratt Institute, NYC/withdrawal

According to my mother and AP art teacher, I had "safer" options like Carnegie Mellon and RISD, but just couldn't take the idea of another 4 years in suburb. 

Do I regret? No!!!  Yes... a little...
