Konnichiwa. That's how they say hello in Japan, where my dad is from.
My name is Rina. It’s nice to meet you.
My dad is from Japan, and my mom is from the U.S. I was born here in the U.S., like my mom.
I don’t have any brothers or sisters, but I have a great dog named Kiko! I love Kiko a lot, but sometimes he gets into trouble. Especially when he steals my toys, or food out of my hand.
I enjoy playing all kinds of sports. I play in the park with my friends Marisa, Trey, Alisha, Lee and Danny. Kiko likes to play too –- except that he always steals the ball while we’re playing!
I like to watch sumo wrestling on TV with my dad. I really, really love to read books! I learn a lot from books –- and sometimes I just like to read funny ones that make me laugh!
And in case you’re interested, my favorite food is kara-age. Sayonara. See you later.
You can see me in Global Wonders: Around the World.
