Hello, my name is Stephanie, and I am half Japanese and half English. I was born and raised in London (UK) but I lived in Tokyo for 18 months when I was a child. I have recently graduated from the University of Leeds with a degree in International Business (BSc, International). During my studies, I also spent a year studying abroad at the University of Newcastle in Australia.
I enjoy travelling to new countries and learning about new cultures. My favourite experience was when I volunteered as an English teacher at a school in Cambodia. It was very rewarding and humbling to see how the children lived. The children worked very hard to improve their English skills to be able to attend University and increase their opportunities in the future.
I now live in Tokyo and I am looking forward to working at GLICC where I can use both my Japanese and English skills. I am also excited to eat all the Japanese food as sushi in England just doesn’t compare.
