My name is Ann, and this is a blog chronicling my time in Japan during August-September 2017. I will be studying with the University of Washington Honors Program in Collaboration with Waseda University. I'm super excited to go on this journey and share it with all of you!
I'm currently finishing up my sophomore year at UW, and I'm pursuing a major in molecular biology and a minor in international studies. I'm also a DJ for the student-run radio station on campus and I'm very passionate about the Seattle music scene and college radio.
I visited Tokyo and Kyoto with my family 2 years ago on vacation and have wanted to go back ever since. I'm so grateful to have the opportunity to return to Japan as a student this time as opposed to a tourist!
I will be documenting my time in Japan on this blog, as well as recording class discussions and assignments. Happy reading!
