From MechaKucha to PechaKucha!

ON JUN 24, 2015
"PechaKucha embraces all the Mechakucha-jin of the world to come and share their ideas!"
Hailing from the Netherlands, Sueli Brodin, editor at the United Nations University, PechaKucha's Maastricht organiser, and our dear friend, pays a visit to Pechakucha Night Tokyo to deliver this compelling presentation at SuperDeluxe about, of all things, PechaKucha!
Growing up very multiculturally (Dutch, French, Brazillian, Japanese), and having lived in Japan for part of her youth, she describes herself as a “Mechakucha-jin” - a hybrid word that borrows from Japanese, evoking an image of per person who is "all-jumbled up." Sueli talks about her personal background and how after years of never quite fitting in, she found a home in the PechaKucha team of Maastricht. She shares her gratitude for Pechkucha and how it continues to offer a home for people like her, and a global stage to everyone wishing to inspire others with their “mechakucha” side.
WOW! How inspiring! Thanks Sueli! We Love You!
