Little Caterpillar in Training: A Culture in Transition and Its Mixed Child in Post-War Japan
By Grace Etsuko Lee
Growing up as a child of an interracial marriage in Japan after World War II was a unique experience and provided the backdrop that launched the author into the realm of a successful career in international marketing. This amazing story of how she learned to transform her danger and other's prejudice by greeting hostility with a welcoming smile, turning fear into curiosity, and sometimes into friendship is the basis on which she currently teaches others to overcome adversity and build confidence through social graces.
Follow through this story of a bewildering childhood that many have found inspiring and uplifting. Though she was “a little caterpillar in training” in a hostile environment, there was always a “Presence” that provided her never-ending assurance that someday she would be the butterfly that shares its courage with others so they can face the challenges of fulfilling their destinies.
