I made the above photo as my profile picture on Facebook, and somehow, it was discovered by one of the kid’s mother. Her post says: "So happy to see my son on the profile picture of a Japanese singer Shu Uesugi".
I’m not a singer, but I handed out my business card to the kids, and here’s what my card looked like. I used a photo of me giving a talk, but the mic might have misled the kids to believe that I was a Japanese singer...
