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

I've spent a month in Japan over two separate trips--I stayed with families and attended high school classes in Saitama and Tokushima.

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?

A few years in high school and college, and I try to study on my own occasionally to keep from getting too rusty.

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

As a little kid, I liked Hello Kitty's frog pal for some reason. It's been some time since I last had dealings with Kitty-chan and her crew, but she's alright in my book.


Recent UCSD alumn, starting next spring I'll be heading to Japan to teach English. I currently tutor English to refugees, hike and spend time exploring the outdoors of our city. Hoping to meet new people and freshen up my Japanese!
