“I’m a music major, Japanese minor, and currently a senior. I was born in Japan since I grew up in a military family, I loved living there, and decided to be a Japanese minor when I got to L&C so I could re-learn how to speak it. I got to study abroad Fall 2016 in the Osaka Gakuin program, which was fantastic – and my language skills drastically improved while abroad.”
