Behind each cherry blossom is a journey, and behind each face is a story. Oftentimes we focus on sharing our achievements and success, but rarely do we ever talk about the steps and obstacles we took to get here. At Unite UW, the focus is on building a family through story-telling. Every story holds a merit, no matter how big or small. Together, cry and smile through this 7-week cultural exchange experience. So what is your story?
