Hello again! I can­not be­lieve that it’s al­ready been a month since our launch – and we have re­ceived over­whelm­ing re­sponses. On be­half of CIVIL­IAN/myEPK Me­dia team, I wanted to ex­press our ut­most ap­pre­ci­a­tion to those who came to our launch event in Los An­ge­les last month. And, I per­son­ally wanted to se­ri­ously thank all those who worked so hard be­hind the scenes to make sure that the event would go smooth and suc­cess­ful. It was a quite joy­ful, cel­e­bra­tory mo­ment – to not only cel­e­brate our launch but also cel­e­brate ev­ery­thing we went through to get to that point. I, my­self, had to jug­gle so much, and I think that was the case for ev­ery­one else, too. In the midst of go­ing through per­sonal/ pro­fes­sional chal­lenges, ev­ery­one took time to sup­port CIVIL­IAN in one way or an­other – the fact it­self gives me so much courage and con­fi­dence, and I truly can­not thank ev­ery­one enough.

With this Spring II is­sue, we are now back in our home base – the Big Ap­ple, the city that never sleeps (and that has en­abled me to face my own weak­nesses, chal­lenge my­self, and grow). As we keep fea­tur­ing di­verse tal­ents and their own sto­ries, I am sin­cerely hop­ing for CIVIL­IAN to be the driv­ing force for spread­ing op­ti­mism, hope, cre­ativ­ity, joy and courage through­out our con­fused so­ci­ety.

Thank you,

Eiko Watan­abe Ed­i­tor-in-Chief
