The Japanese–American violinist reflects on honesty and how it helps her as an artist

Honesty challenges our weaknesses and inadequacies

Honesty is extremely important as an artist. It helps each one of us to confront what is within and around us, and to accept it; it challenges our weaknesses and inadequacies, but also gives us the courage to overcome our shortcomings; and it leaves us wanting to better ourselves and to respect and honour the people and the environment around us, as well as the world at large.
