Isaac Aquino, founder of Tokyo Interlopers, gives us an insight into what you can achieve if you are willing to be creative and take a chance on an idea. He began a social media photoblog which is not only gaining popularity everyday, he is managing to change cultural perceptions on what it is like to live as a foreigner in Tokyo, Japan. Isaac is a long-time Tokyo resident of Filipino heritage, who left the 9-5 world behind to pursue his passion: celebrating Tokyo`s diversity. He began a social media movement called Tokyo Interlopers that captures the lives of individuals living, surviving and thriving in a culture that has been stereotypically `closed`, demonstrating that change in Japan is on the horizon. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
