Dear my little…
Yokohama College of Art and Design
I’m so happy that something I created for myself has been so well received. Each person's reasons for creating something and the ways they express themselves differ, but it was a stimulating experience to be in a position to create something and share my creative drive and curiosity with others.
I have the future.
