This project is a collaboration between Michala Storm, mindset coach and creator of the ON TRACK map (Denmark) and Sumire Sato, clinical psychologist, (Japan).
It’s mission is to bring more happiness and hope – including self-acceptance and self-esteem – to the Japanese Youth by providing them the ON TRACK map teachings.
Michala Storm and Sumire Sato meet in Denmark during the summer of 2022, as Sumire Sato visited Michala’s home as an AirBnB guest.
Soon the two women found that they had much in common and naturally began to have interesting conversation about mental health, happiness and hope.
The Happiness & Hope Journal
This journal and coloring book is specifically customized for the Japanese Youth with the purpose of giving them easy acces to a simple framework that will help them build more self-esteem and increase their happiness.
It has been translated to Japanese by Sumire Sato in co-creation with Michala Storm (Illustrations) so that it can easily be applied by any Japanese student.

So far the the Happiness & Hope for Japanese Youth is a volunteer project.
If it resonates with you, Sumire Sato and Michala Storm would truly appreciate any amount of donation that you would like to contribute so that they can continue on their mission.
Your donation will go towards developing the teaching materials further (= provide more time to translate and illustrate) + the production of the Happiness & Hope YouTube channel as a free ressource for the Japanese Youth.
