I'm Akari, An Expert in Organizing
I grew up in Japan and attended college in Taiwan. I speak Japanese, English and Chinese. I came to the United States in 2010. I'm also a mom of two little boys. Most of my time is spent raising my two sons, being an involved parent in their education. When I have free time, I spend time practicing Ashtanga Yoga.
I started getting interested in organizing after I lived away from my parents. When I would return to visit them, all I would want to do is help them tidy up their household from the items I left behind. When I was working or volunteering, people would always be very appreciative of me when I organized the spaces we were working in. It was something that I did to make my workplace a more enjoyable and comfortable place. From this, I started towards earning a certification called Seiri Shuno Advisor (the organizing certification issued by the House Keeping Association of Japan). Every time I returned to Japan, I would continue to attend seminars and take tests, in which I received my certification in 2016.
I really enjoy tidying up and organizing. Just planning about it makes me excited. I check my family’s belongings regularly and continue practicing our lifestyle of simple and comfortable.
