Kana Sambe - President, Glowing Cloud

Kana was a journalist for nine years with Fukushima Minyu News, a local newspaper, covering sports, Koriyama City government, and the economy. She left journalism and joined the tax counseling office of the accounting firm, where she was in charge of public relations and seminars for clients. She was on maternity leave when the earthquake struck, and was evacuated for half a year with her then 3-month-old son. She went back to work at the accounting firm but wanted to help in Fukushima’s recovery. She learned about facilitation, and in March 2014, started the NPO Glowing Cloud with friends. The mission of the organization is to make “a town where people laugh, gather, learn from each other, and start being creative.” It supports entrepreneurs and provides human resource development, manages co-ba koriyama, a co-working and event space, and sponsors literary gatherings and discussions.
