Seiko from Japan

“I am Seiko. I am 40 years old. I work three days a week, at a food shop.

I take music lesson once a week. I really enjoy playing the piano. I know I am not good at the piano, but the teacher said, “your piano performance is great. Because I know you are enjoying playing the piano. and I know your piano makes me very happy.”

I wanted to live at an apartment house alone when I was 22 years old. But I decided to live with my parents because they love me very much. I know I have to live without my parents, someday. I wanted to help them to live a happy life.

I stayed the class at school with children without disabilities. I went to regular high school even if my score was not good enough.

I am very happy to work at a food shop now.”
