Hello, my name is Mia Yao. I’m from China and I am a rising junior at Dickinson College. I am majoring in Psychology with an East Asian Studies minor. I became interested in Japanese movies and literature since middle school and would like to learn more about Japanese culture and history. I have learned Japanese for two years and although I am still not very confident about speaking it, I would love to practice my Japanese during this trip. I am excited to visit Nagoya for the first time and looking forward to seeing you.
