Mion has Japanese parents but was born and raised in the state of Ohio in the United States. As long as she can remember, she has always taken care of little children during a weekly Japanese gathering her family hosted at her house. It was only natural for her to be in love with children. Throughout her life, she has continuously interacted with children through many platforms. One such is through tutoring and babysitting. She has also worked as a teacher’s assistant for a kindergarten class. These experiences helped further her understanding of children’s behavior and also helped gain responsibility, patience, and creativity. Taking care of children always consumes so much energy, facing new challenges with every child. However, that is what makes childcare so rewarding and fun. Building connections with kids and their family, we gain experiences that last life-long!
