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

My Japanese is only at an advanced-beginner level and I'd seriously like to learn and be fluent one day.

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

In high school I worked at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, where they host Sakura Matsuri events which I attended twice. It was really interesting watching koto players and dramas.

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

Japanese was my first exposure to learning a new language and even after stopping for a few years I found myself still recalling words and phrases and trying to practice on my own. I realized it was something I was passionate about and couldn't shake off. Watching Jvlogers and reading about Japan also have made me really want to go, either to teach or maybe just visit.

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

I'd be willing to help out once I've attended a few meet ups and felt that I could help.

__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. :)

Yes, I have.


I'm currently a college student pursuing a degree in physics at Manhattan College, but in my spare time I love practicing Japanese and learning about Japan through J-vlogers on youtube.
