Yuki, friend of Carly and daughter of Taro
What is your superpower?
I'm not sure if I have a superpower but I like to be crazy or I like to draw pictures. So maybe that's my superpower.
What are you proud of?
I'm kind of proud of myself about how much I learned about the different language here. Because I couldn't speak English at all when I moved here but now I can speak a lot. So I'm proud of myself about that.
What is your spirit vegetable?
Maybe tomato. I like to eat tomato with salt. lt's really simple but it's really good.
What do you expect from a friend?
A person who pays attention to another person's feelings. Because I think being fake or just hurting people without apologizing it's the worst thing ever. So I like the person who is taking care of people.
How important are friends to you?
When I was depressed about something, like homesick or some other stuff, they helped me. And they always listen what I say and they always support me. Or while I was crying they would ask me what happened and if I say something negativ they say that's not true. They will talk about my good side, my positive part. And they're always helping like that. And for school if I can't understand they always explain to me easily. They help me about a lot of stuff like for school and other things. So they're really important for me.
Do you have enough time for them?
Yes, but we are not the persons who are taking contact, like message each other that much. Or like hanging out a lot. I mean when we have school we do hang out all day at school. But after school or during a long break we don't hang out that much. So I wish I could hang out and we could text each other more easily.
Is it easy to become friends in your country?
Yes. It's so much better because they're really friendly. They talk a lot even if they don't know each other. They introduce themselves like "hi my name is..." and then try to be friend with each other. So I'm really proud of them about that.
