Tell us about your interest in, or your relationship to, Japan / Japanese.

I lived in Misawa, a small city in the Aomori Prefecture in Northern Japan for two years, 2010 and 2011. I studied Japanese while there, however never anything formal mainly learning during casual conversation with friends.

If you are not from Japan, have you studied Japanese? Where? 日本の方、日本のどこからですか?

Not Japanese but I have lived and studied Japanese while there as mentioned before.

How many Hello Kitty items do you own? (No, possession of Kitty-chan articles is not a requirement of membership.)

Sorry, I don’t own any but I have eaten at a Hello Kitty café, if that counts.


I'm Shakir and I am new to San Diego. I was born in Jamaica but left when I was young, growing up in Orlando, FL. My hobbies are traveling, photography, reggae music, movies and foreign languages. I am in the Navy and looking forward to life here.
