Rena’s Heartfelt Letter
Yesterday, Nozawa Rena posted her message in her G+, in Japanese and Bahasa Indonesia. Her Japanese message is longer than her Bahasa Indonesia’s. Hopefully this translation helps you to understand Rena’s heart in detail.
What’s in my mind after Daisokaku
My double position with JKT48 team J was cancelled..
As a first generation member, since the times when nobody knew JKT, I have been building up JKT very hard, together with all the first generation members. I remember there were many vacant seats in our theater, day after day we were asked who we were… But now, JKT has grown up so much to the point that they won various awards. However, I think, JKT -what we are today- owes our old days when we were busy and were seeing uncertain future.
So now, I’m going to do my best in Japan.
For one and a half years, all of the first generation worked so hard. I will never forget about it.
I still remember the days where I was always selected as a (JKT) senbatsu, and when I have to return to Japan was the moment where I became aware of myself to become aggressive as a part of JKT. It was really saddening at first. However, I was happy to have had the double position in Japan, AKB and JKT!
It is also my grief that my double position was canceled. I don’t want to be separated from JKT48. But now, I’m going to do my best in Japan. I will work hard, then I want to show my gratitude “I’m here because of you” to JKT48 fans. For this reason, now and forever, I will continue to work hard here as a JKT48 member in my heart until the day when I will be able to say that I have grown up so much!
I don’t want to be stamped with “Rena can’t do anything”, I really hope to become a person who people will say : “We can leave Rena in charge for that!” someday.
And, as it was in Jakarta, I hope to be always selected as a senbatsu member and to be known by lot of people here.
And then, one day, I wonder if I will be able to come back home to Jakarta…
So, please keep on supporting me even though we are far away!
