I want to know if people need the services I have in mind.
Actions I’ve taken so far
I have created a Twitter account to survey the thoughts of parents who are not attending school. I have set up a website to sell goods that eliminate barriers to developmental disabilities.
My future goals
I want to create a world where going to school is not an absolute value. I want to create a society where any person can make full use of his or her abilities.
My motivations to work with a mentor
I used to be a dentist and did not have a good mentor at all. The industry I was in did not give me a very good experience because I was a woman, and I wanted to work in a different, more new-thinking industry. So I took a course on Google Data Analysis and heard that finding a good mentor is a shortcut to success, which convinced me that it is still important to find a mentor no matter what industry you are in.
About my venture
Services that allow children with developmental disabilities to be educated at home and create respite for families with such children.
In Japan, there are many children who cannot go to school. The reason for this is that they are more unique than other children due to developmental disabilities, or they have higher grades and do not fit in group education classes. These children either receive special training to fit in with the group or give up and go to free school. Free schools are still few and far between. In most cases, the mothers quit their jobs to attend to their children, and in many cases, they are under a lot of stress. Although individuality is a joyful thing, it is not utilized in a positive way in Japanese education. There are many homeschooling sites overseas, but language and legal barriers make it difficult to take advantage of them. Therefore, we are considering the possibility of creating a service that can take on these problems all at once.
