In a sentence, parentheses are used to represent an aside or an extra piece of information that is closely related to the main subject. In America, we immigrants are also part of a greater whole but uniquely distinct in our multicultural backgrounds. Depiction of a parenthesis in our JSKY logo not only symbolizes this proud heritage of diversity but also celebrates a shared sense of belonging to this great nation. So we challenge you- fill in your own parenthesis, define who you are and what our future will be.
