Change!

Tonight I attended the talk event in San Francisco which was presented by a famous interpreter from Japan Ms Eriko Sekiya. I was a little shy to resister because I thought that the majority of audience must be besiness people working for marketing, engineering, etc., and I am from totally different field. I also worried about the traffic and looking for a parking space in the city on the weekday evening. Anyway, I decided to go and see...actually, I was glad to made it! The another small title of the theme was "change" which I was just thinking of these days.. "What is my next step?" The audience were Americans, Asians including Japanese, and the talk was presented in English. 


同時通訳者の関谷英里子さんの講演会に行ってきました。畑ちがいのわたしは浮くだろうなぁとか、平日の帰宅ラッシュの時間帯にサンフランシスコに行くのは腰が重いなぁとか、当日までちょっと迷っていたんだけどそんなこと言ってたら何も始まらないわ!っと思い、行ってみることに。(仕事早めに抜けたけどそれでも市内がひどい渋滞でギリギリ駆け込み。)


ご自身も含めたサンフランシスコで働く優秀な日本人達についてのお話だけど日本人向けではないので講演は英語オンリー。前進しつづける素敵な女性から良い刺激をうけた。レセプションまで残れたらお話できたかもしれないけど猫のために急いで帰った。英語もっとがんばってぜひまたお会いしたいです。
