Contextualizing social change messages for Japanese

Born to a traditional family and reared in Japan, Joy attended university and graduate school in Pasadena (USA), specializing in cross-cultural understanding and communication.

Appealing to Japanese cultural values, including honor for parents and ancestors, Joy trains and advises those who introduce messages that bring hope and joy to those who hold a non-western worldview.

Joy directs "Rice Flower," a service that provides Japanese women with peer mentoring and emotional support both in Japan and in the USA.
