recommendationThe testimonial that I received from my business associate, which I worked during part of 2001 and 2002.

Shoko Sakakibara interned at the Times Record and at Just Write Communications during part of 2001 and 2002 right here in Brunswick. She speaks very good American English and you and your group would be interested in what she learned from her time in Maine. She is now a sole proprietor of a business offering English writing for textbooks for the Japanese publishing industry.

recommendationComment about Just Write Studio Japan's web site from Claire Bastien, editorial page editor of The Times Record

Congratulations on your new Web site. It's very nice. I think you are too modest, though, when you write about your experiences here at The Times Record. I would like people to know that your column helped me win First Place for Best Editorial Page from the Maine Press Association in 2002! Thank you very much for your contributions to the Opinion and Commentary pages when you were here with us. You are a very special professional young woman.

All the best,
