Frequently asked questions
What is your favorite experience abroad?
My entire trip to Myanmar. I was lucky enough to attend university with the first group of students from Myanmar that were allowed to attend university. After graduating we went to visit them and had this amazing trip through Yangon, Bagan and Mandalay. It’s forced me to become more educated on the different countries that are out there, especially with the unrest and tragic actions of military rule.

What is your favorite word in the English or Japanese language?
Umai! Definitely umai. It basically means “this is good” or “delicious” (similar to another Japanese word, Oishii). It took awhile for me to understand though that it also had another meaning. Soon after learning it, I started hearing it playing futsal and basketball and quickly realized there was probably another meaning…… That other meaning is “this person is good at something” or “this person is skilled at something”
