Hometown:  San Francisco, CA

Majors/minors: Sociology, East Asian Studies

Campus activities, involvement, or other interests: I am a Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellow doing research in Asian American literature. As for interests, I am obsessed with Japanese literature, especially with Mishima and Murakami.

Why I chose to do this program: I am really intrigued by the intensive language program because I want to improve my Japanese language fluency since I have exhausted the available courses at my school. In addition, since the program is at Waseda University, I'm excited to meet many intelligent and ambitious students there.

What I'm most excited about: I am most excited about having a host family and having an opportunity to meet my favorite authors in Japan.

Anything else? I'm looking forward to visiting the infamous cat cafes.
