"Being a member
of AFWJ is joining a new extended family tree. The roots of this
family are AFWJ and all of the leaves are the members (who soon
become my friends) that I've met throughout the years.
AFWJ's extended family has helped me adjust to daily life. Now,
I can comfortably call Japan 'my home'. "
