Hometown: Inverness (where the monster Nessie lives!)
Interest and hobbies: I really enjoy writing short stories and blogging. Next year I will be studying English at University, so I love reading books! For exercise, I play hockey. Art was my favorite subject at school and I like visiting galleries and painting.
Favorite Music: Taylor Swift!
Favourite Game: Disney Tsum Tsum!
Favourite Food: In Japan, I love Katsu Curry! It is delicious.
First Impressions of Japan: So far I love it! Everyone has been very kind and friendly even though I don’t speak much Japanese! The city is full of beautiful skyscrapers and temples. There is a rich culture everywhere whether it is traditional Japan or Anime. Everyone in Tokyo is stylish!
Message for SWU students: I am very excited to here as part of C.I.E! I would like to make lots of friends. It would be nice to learn more Japanese so maybe you could teach me a little in return for help with English. I am at Showa for a year so there is a lot of time to learn about Japanese culture. It would be great to have some tour guides to show me all the fun things to do in Tokyo! I hope I can help make learning English enjoyable for you!
