I’m an American of partial Filipino ancestry on my father’s side. In 1948 when I was 13 years old my father took our entire family to the Philippines so that me and my three siblings could learn about Philippine culture and customs and get a Philippine education. I lived in the Philippines for 8 years to go to high school and college. During this time I learned how to be a Filipino. I have lived Tokyo, Japan since 1969.
