My Journey to Discover the Legacy of my Grandma, Yuri Kochiyama


This album is a collection of personal pictures as well as pictures gathered from the internet and the Japanese American National Museum archives that I have compiled to illustrate my continuous journey to discover the legacy of my grandma, Yuri Kochiyama. 

Currently, at the age of 20, I know that I still have a lot to learn, but I eagerly look forward to every second of it! I would like this album to be a sort of tribute and thanks to my grandma for being such an amazing role model for me and all of the grandkids. 

Maybe for those of you who do not know her personally, this album will give you insight into the kind of person she is beyond her career and accomplishments.
