Satoko Kishimoto the iconic Japanese politeness and friendship.
Satoko Kishimoto was born in Okinawa Japan, a warm and humid island where great diving, sake, sushi, and cherry blossoms are always a feast. And if you didn't know, Okinawa is the birthplace of karate and through the winter its temperatures reach a tropical 20°C.
😊 In 2019 Satoko moved to Colorado, United States where she enjoys the little things in life. Coincidentally this is the title of her favorite book by Catherine Hapka: "When I want to relax and feel better I always read this book. It has great inspiring quotes."
🐕 Each morning she takes a long walk with her Havanese and pitbull dogs prior to starting work: "They always play with me and when it's cold they are my warmer."
👉 In her free time Satoko spends time with her family, watches the sunset, takes pictures, and learns new IT-related skills: "I studied Information Technology. I mainly learned programming and databases but I also learned economy, Photoshop, Illustrator, and Spanish. Lately I started learning AWS".
Satoko embodies iconic Japanese politeness and friendship and her willingness to contribute and help others is proof of a world where people change people.
Q: Satoko why did you get involved in our project?
A: “When I studied chemistry in high school, they didn't teach us about the history of Dmitri Mendeleev or Chernobyl, nor did we have access to complete information for all chemical elements. This project taught me that laboratory experiments can be fun and the learning process much easier. I like helping others so translating the project's content into Japanese was a perfect fit.“
Q: What is your opinion about the educational system in the United States?
A: “Education is costly for families who can't afford it and the burden of this disparity is placed on children. This is why I wanted to contribute to Mendeleev.me.“
Q: Are you inspired by any actor, musician, or star?
“Yes, Lionel Messi. He is shorter than other soccer players but he worked hard and achieved a lot in his career.“
