Hi, I’m Kumiko!
A proud mom, Early Childhood Educator, Educational Assistant, and a nature lover helping you to create your desired future!
I am passionate about improving the health & wellness of women, children, and our environment.
I was born and raised in Japan where women were taught to behave and not speak up. That did not sit well with me, so I decided to do the opposite! I think taking a fashion design course really helped show me how to create my own life. Picture how fabric gets turned into clothes. There are many steps, mistakes, and tears so on…just like life. But if you persevere, the rewards are big!
I’m also a huge nature lover. Nature has been my friend & a very wise teacher. My family members disappear when I’m cranky, but nature is always there for me. So I’ve spent hours in nature, especially when I was little. Eventually, the draw of nature and a more liberal society led me to immigrate to Canada.
As you can imagine, my early childhood memories created who I am today. That’s why I believe in the importance of nature play for children and definitely for Moms!!
At almost age 50, I finally found my purpose and started sharing my experience in Kozy Craft. So that others can find courage to take action for a better life.
