Give us a little biographic information about yourself.
I'm half-American and half-Japanese. I grew up in Japan, and then moved to the US for college when I was 18. My degree was in French. Previous to MIIS, I worked at numerous language summer camps. I also held other types of jobs, such as a Starbucks barista for a year.
