[She graduated from St. Maur International School in Yokohama.
Her 9,900-word Emerson Prize paper on the Kamikaze Pilots was published
in the Fall 1996 issue of The Concord Review. She wanted to know why Japanese her age would commit suicide in that way. She spent three years going to every Kamikaze museum in Japan and meeting as many survivor families as she could. Her conclusion after all that work? She said she still didn’t really understand why they did it.] (A HS scholar)....
Mako Sasaki congratulated you on your work anniversary!
Since March 1987—27 years of The Concord Review
"Being published in The Concord Review was perhaps one of the best things that has happened in my life—beats passing the bar by a long shot. It has given me an unexpected journey through young adulthood till today (and counting!), which brought me experiences that I would have never expected when I started writing that essay 21 years ago. Thank you for providing not only the platform to be published, but a tremendous journey in the 18 years that have transpired since then that has truly shaped who I am. Your work influenced my life in more ways than I can express. I hope many more students will have the opportunity I was blessed with to be published in The Concord Review."
