At a hostel in the  Asakusa neighborhood of Tokyo, I noticed the colorful wood table after breakfast. It reminded me not of Tokyo but the colors of South America where I would be headed to next, almost a foreshadowing of my travels.

“I love going to the J because I meet new people at the “Going Places!” Social Club there. Over the years, I worked hard to overcome a mild disability but still found it difficult to make friends. I have gained confidence, learned how to approach new people, and discovered I can enjoy communicating with them.” - Valerie M.
