One of the most heart warming stories of the season is the addition of Akiko Hosada. Akiko joined United all the from Japan. She is United's first International member and she is completely awesome.
Obviously this is a great story for United and #WGI. We are excited to have her. But make no mistake she put in (and still puts in) alot of time and efforct to be here. Akiko took it upon herself to get her Visa, book her flight, move in with another member, pay room and board, all in a foreign country with another language...all to drum and march United. I find that to be remarkable and in a word #Fearless.
You can catch Akiko in the 2014 Snare line. Come meet and watch her perform this weekend at the Unionville WGI Regional.
