Hello! I'm the first person in my family to study abroad (as well as the first to go to a four-year college). I've always been fascinated with Japanese pop culture (anime, manga, music, etc) and while abroad, I hope to learn more about Japan's more traditional culture. My home university is Hampshire College in Massachusetts, U.S. where I study animation and Japanese language. I'll be going abroad to Nihon University in Mishima, Japan. I'm excited to make lots of friends and try all kinds of amazing food!
