My story


After graduating from university in May of 2016, I came to Japan to improve my Japanese. I have improved so much since I came here, and I’m hoping to get better as my time in Japan increases. I have a dream of working at a famous Japanese video game company, but that dream is pretty far off, so until I can do that, I want to have as much fun as I can teaching English at OEC. I have enjoyed teaching English more than I thought I would, because the environment, teachers, and students are all so amazing.

I have been interested in Japan since I realized that some of my favorite things came from here: video games. Of course I was very into anime as well, but after starting to study more Japanese and Japanese culture, I found a new interest in Shrines, Temples, Japanese history, and many other customs and festivals around Japan.

In Japan, I have been to many places and really hope to go to more in the future. Tokyo, Nagoya, Gifu, Kyoto, and Hiroshima, just to name a few. And of course, Osaka! I love the people, and the food here so much, and am so happy to call it my home!
