I wanted to to go to New York. I had no reason. Maybe I was driven subconciously from the American movies and TV Programs which I used to enjoy as a young boy. I was so damn serious. I could get high score in TOEFL and ready to apply for American University.
Then, my father got sick. My mother asked me to stop my plan of studying abroad and simply finish Japanese University. She wanted me to start working as soon as possible. I needed to give up studying in the US. I could not leave sick father and lonely mother behind.
That could have been the end of my dream and stop studying English. But, I did not do that. I do not know why I did that and who I could that, but I studied Academic Debate. I got a job in Japanese electronics company and assigned to International Operation. My mother still remembers around that time I kept saying that I use company money to study and work abroad. That might be better. I did not give up.
In 1985, I was sent to New York as a participants to International Business Training Program. I enjoyed New York one year. I kept working for 15 more years in the same company until I met my real change and challenge.
