When I was a student, I heard about Eriko Yamaguchi, the founder of Motherhouse.
As a developmental Economics student with a dream to make an impact, she worked as a summer intern at an international organization in Washington DC. Assigned in a large-scale project, she met highly-educated and experienced professionals from all over the world, but she had a slight discomfort when she knew that none of those professionals had been to developing countries ever. She could not help questioning herself that “through whatever we are doing here, does it really helps people in developing countries?”
She googled the word “least less developed-country in Asia”, and it showed Bangladesh, which turned into a destination where she headed to study and started this company.
It’s about time for me to get a new wallet, and today I bought “Komorebi” home.
Komorebi (木漏れ日) means sunlight filtering through trees.
