Program & Development Coordinator
Masa began more consciously and intentionally assessing how his actions aligned with his beliefs when he attended Community Tampa Bay's ANYTOWN® program in 2001 as a delegate. He credits Community Tampa Bay with much of his personal growth and social awareness. He has a passion for philosophy, especially concerning ethics, and loves listening to public radio as a means to learn more through the experiences of others. The most memorable part of his first trip back to Japan after 16 years was home-cooked food with his family, so he loves to cook for others and eat with others to create a sense of community. His experiences have shown him that engaging in dialogue while breaking bread can break barriers.
