New MVP – Junko Nakayama shares her journey

Junko Nakayama has been awarded with MVP status by Salesforce in September 2017 for her outstanding contribution to Salesforce community in sharing knowledge, leadership skills, and showing creativity within the Salesforce Community.  Here is her journey to MVP status in her own words!

Special thanks to Junko Nakayama for taking extra efforts in translating her original message written in Japanese to English for all of us.

As a note of gesture, I used google translator to re-translate the English version to Japanese for non-english readers!  Pardon me and google translator for any mistakes.
