I am a physical therapist specialized in pediatric field. I have been active on summer camps for physically challenged children since college. I have spent many times with those kids and been surprised how much unknown possibilities they actually hold. Every single experience is precious.
I am hoping to help create a community where kids can be themselves through OluOlu activities.
Ball is my best friend.
Soccer became my life long sports since 5 and played on a team until I graduated high school. I teach kids' soccer team now.
I work as a physical therapist at a general clinic in Tokyo and have various conditioned patients.
I truly believe that society needs to create an environment where physically challenged kids can do what they want to do and am very excited to be one of OluOlu.
I majored in Physical Therapy in college and got a license as physical therapist. Now I study at graduate school with a theme on "Perceptual Information Processing during Walking" .
I played soccer since elementary school until graduated from high school. I have learned that sports is very important in your life, regardless how well you play. I am hoping kids can experience the same thing as I did and simply enjoy playing sports.
