I believe my story is one of opportunity. As a Japanese-American, I was fortunate to be given the opportunity to achieve my dream of racing cars at the highest level in a sport that has opened its arms to diversity. I am proof that anyone can be successful if given the opportunity – no matter your race, gender, or beliefs. Now a new opportunity is upon me. An opportunity to lead by example and serve as a role model in a way that never occurred to me before. An opportunity to encourage today’s youth - no matter their background - to reach their full potential and achieve their dreams too. An opportunity to make the racing community more inclusive and caring for one another. I hope my story and my actions help unite and bring communities together. I am just getting started.
