It is an honor for me to be appointed as a Friendship Ambassador.
I was born in Switzerland of a Swiss mother and a Japanese father. Until I was 16, I lived in Switzerland. Then I moved to Japan. So I feel like both countries are a «hometown» for me.
Although Switzerland and Japan are geographically far apart, I think they have a lot of features in common.
As a Friendship Ambassador, I hope I can help connect Switzerland and Japan even more.
