I have the desire to study the social and cultural history of modern Japan because I myself am Japanese born from a Japanese mother yet I have no real understanding of any of Japanese history. For the most part, I have never truly enjoyed history during my school years. This has started to change recently as I have come to realize that it is relatively important for adults to understand the basic of global historical events. I have realized that for both the sake of my graduation requirement and general growth as an adult, I should invest time in learning the history of my blood.
