On Friday, the 2nd of June, one of JFC, Ms. A, visited our office.
Ms. A, whose mother is Filipino and father is Japanese, was born and raised in Japan and has been a Filipino nationality for a long time, and her application for naturalization to Japan was approved. This is the first naturalization case in the JFC network.
Ms. A did not want her katakana name to be considered “half” and wanted to use a Japanese kanji name, but when it came time to think about her name when applying for naturalization, she became emotionally attached to her katakana name, which she had been familiar with for many years, and decided to use it instead of her kanji name. Now that she has obtained Japanese nationality, she seems to feel more of a Filipino identity than before.

Ms. A has a wonderful dream. Please keep working hard toward that dream. We are always praying for you.
