There is a Japanese saying "Junin Toiro (十人十色; 10 People, 10 Colors）" which means that there are 10 different career/life paths if there are 10 people. At NYCA, we believe in and advocate this concept, so we incorporated it in our 10-color logo!
In every aspect of our services, we strive to encourage our clients live their own lives, not influenced too much by stereotypes or main-stream ways of living.
