Ami's strongest skills are gathering and establishing both people and resources. Her passion for serving starts 15 years ago and she has served in different capacities in the Ogden Japanese Christian Church, Nihon Matsuri Japan Festival, Ogden Buddhist Church, the Utah Asian Festival, and as a liason between the Asian American community and the Utah Pride Festival. Ami is confident that there is good representation in the city, but wants to work towards getting people involved, empowered and aware of the diversity initiative. She is great at organizing her resources to get the job done. Diversity has always been important to Ami and she wants to help Ogden city promote it through stories and personal experiences.
