B1G1 now works with more than 500 businesses in over 14 countries and lists over 600 projects in 29 countries. She was born in Japan yet her desire to expand her horizons took her on a journey of exploration travelling throughout the world. Her way of travelling was about connecting with people to gain insights and understandings of different cultures, lifestyles and environment. In the past 16 years, she has lived in Canada, Guatemala, New Zealand, Australia and Singapore and travelled to more than 30 countries in 5 continents. Though originally educated to become an architect in Japan, her career has followed her diverse talent and extensive interests having been a teacher, a translator, an entrepreneur and a natural food chef (and a farmer!).

At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.
