Do I speak Japanese?__ seriously want to learn?__ want to teach?__

I speak some basic Japanese and I sincerely want to learn to speak at a very high level. I would love to help others with things that I understand clearly enough to teach.

Do I have a favorite Japanese culture story that I want to tell you?

I don't know if this counts, but when I visited Japan I went to a dance club in Roppongi. The Japanese people there wanted to dance more like me, and I ended up teaching a small group how to do a couple of dances. It was so fun!

Why?... Yes! Why am I interested in the culture and language of the people of Japan?

I feel that, even if I am American, I was born in Japan. I want to know more about the land I was born in and I find the culture beautiful and fascinating and relatable.

Will I help our Group as an Assistant Organizer, or a special event's Guest Organizer? Maybe__ No__ Yes__

Yes, I'd assist when I have time.

__Yes, I have completed my Profile page and posted my modest passport-style ID photo to MAKE NEW FRIENDS faster & help all of you to find ME quick at our events. :)



My name is Zuri. I would like to make new friends and improve my understanding of Japanese and Japanese culture. I was born in Japan and I've been trying to gain more of an understanding of the people and place.
