Where is your place in the world?

Emi Matsushima, a Japanese/German climber who, after living amongst a plethora of cultures growing up and feeling the need to fit into a box she never felt a part of, developed a severe eating disorder caused by these critical cultural expectations. In an attempt to find herself, she ventured around the world solo until she came across the warmly welcoming community of outdoor climbers who welcomed her how she was always meant to be.
