Being a person who was born in Peru and grew up in Minnesota, I am a person with two different cultural backgrounds in me. Growing up with video games, books and the Internet, I am what you would call a geek. Through my love of books, writing stories, Japanese culture and its language, I decided to get a B.A. in English and Asian Literature and Languages (with a focus on Japanese) at the University of Minnesota.
During the summer of 2011, I was accepted into the JET (Japan Exchange and Teaching) program. Since August 2011 I have been exploring and teaching in Osaka, Japan! While I never imagined teaching elementary and junior high kids in the Far East, I’m definitely having a lot of fun with it!
What you shall be reading here will be mostly about my life in Japan as well as my random thoughts on life or geekery, amusing Internet findings, and perhaps maybe even a short story or two!
