    Living abroad for a decade exposed me to identity crises, complexes triggered by bullying, and a youth weighed down by self-doubt. But in the midst of it all, Beauty emerged as my rock of courage. My passion for Beauty transformed into my guiding light, driving me into the beauty industry for the past ten years. The diverse connections I've made have played a massive role in shaping who I am today. As I've delved into the beliefs of industry icons, I've realized just how limitless Beauty's potential is. However, the more I got involved, the more I noticed the dilemmas not just within the industry, but also within Japan itself. Despite facing setbacks along the way, many simply look the other way. I'm determined to change this, to cultivate a sense of fulfillment both within Beauty and across the nation. This determination gave birth to ampule. We kicked off in 2021, and today, ampule is thriving with a passionate team of 40+ members who are steadfast in our mission. As we march towards the future we're passionate about and strive to give back to the industry, we're on a mission to magnify J-Beauty's impact on a global stage. Your unwavering support means the world to us. - Founder and Representative of ampule, Asami Iida
