My name is Aimee and I am a student studying at Portland State University. My major is Japanese, and I am embarking on a year long study abroad program in Tokyo, Japan. In that slideshow you’ll see some pictures of me from when I performed in a kabuki play last spring. I’ve been involved with traditional Japanese drama for the past year.
You’ll also see my sister, Erika. She originally grew up in Japan. It’s a long story, but basically she came to live with my family when she was about 11 years old. She’s 17 now. I’ve been to Japan three times now with her, but only for a few weeks at a time. My hobbies include singing, acting, dancing, writing, and cosplaying. I’m crazy about animals and I have two adorable cats of my own.
I’m looking forward to sharing my journey with you all.
