Portrait of Miki Arlen

—Miki Arlen, 2018 & 2019 Summers in Okinawa.

“I never would have fully realized my passions for cultural history and storytelling without OMI. Inspired by the oral history interviews I helped facilitate in Okinawa, I’ve started conducting life history interviews with my own family members, encouraging intergenerational conversations about Japanese-American identity that my family has never had. Now, I’m planning to apply to UCLA’s Asian American Studies Masters program to study documentary filmmaking under Renee Tajima Peña. Thanks OMI!”
