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

Born in Yokohama. Only have spent summers in Aizu, Japan. Recently participated in San Diego-Yokohama Youth Exchange where I was able to visit Yokohama, Tokyo, and Kyoto.

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?

Independent Study in High School and 3 years at the University of San Diego as an undergrad

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

One, a notebook in my car for memos

Introduction

Konnichiwa. I'm a Japanese-Mexican San Diegan. Many people know me because of my job as the Program Director of Japan Society of San Diego and Tijuana. Despite the businessy/serious title, I'm just a fun-loving San Diego girl!

What Aya is saying about this Meetup Group

I think this meetup is a great way to make friends, explore San Diego, and keep up with Japan.
