Hi, I’m Hikari (means light in Japanese). Thanks for stopping by.
A simplified approach to beauty
I started Becoming Light to unite my passion for beauty (skin care, fashion, etc.) with my faith in Christ in documenting my life’s exploration of what beauty means as a child of God. My one approach to beauty is effective simplicity–something that seamlessly incorporates itself into one’s life without hindering it or masking it.
Korea, Japan, America
I’m a Korean American born/raised in San Diego and currently residing in LA. What’s with the Japanese, you ask?
While I’m passionate about simplifying skin care and fashion, my primary calling is to Japan. I’m dedicating my life to sharing the good news of the gospel to a hurting nation. I’ve taught myself the language and have been going to a local Japanese church for the past three years. I’m also active as a Japanese singer/cover artist (primarily on YouTube), so that’s something you might see come up fairly often on this blog.
Many of my perspectives in regards to beauty and to life are informed by my faith and cultural upbringing.
I’m far from perfect (or even good, for that matter), but I hope that what I can share here from my interests/experiences proves an encouragement (or at the very least, an amusement) to you in your walk.
