Summary
In this program, three bilingual and bicultural women discuss their experience with language and identity, and the ways in which culture has influenced both. Eriko, who is Japanese but educated in the U.K., finds it easier to express herself in English than in her native tongue. Kazuho is also Japanese, but moved to the U.S. as a child before returning to Japan as a teen. She shares her perceptions about language as a reflection of Asian and American societal differences. And Janet, raised in Japan and Hawaii, is the daughter of a second-generation Japanese father and a mother who was born in Japan. "I'm American when they want me to be, and Japanese when they want me to be," she says
