I am a graduate of San Diego State University’s School of Journalism & Media Studies with a minor in Creative Editing & Publishing, aspiring to be a digital/print magazine editor in a country, that offers a competitive society that always keeps me challenged with new experiences.
I was involved in two internship programs while at SDSU. Acquiring both internships would provide the necessary experience I was searching for to enhance my education in the field of media and journalism. I interned as a social media coordinator and marketer at TEDx ChulaVista, a media organization. I also interned as an editor at Fiction International, a literary journal.
My constant ambition has been to maintain utmost quality as a genuine person and a professional rather than someone who merely feigns these qualities. I believe I have this priority as a result of my professional experience in the world-class hospitality industry in Japan. It was there that I worked with foreign employees and communicated with not only Japanese guests but also international guests requiring a high level of attention to detail. I place enormous value on genuine communication, efficiency, inside beauty and quality, in order to make others’ lives fulfilled.
Traveling to Republic of Korea since 2014 has enhanced my individual research of media, and my international backgrounds of the United States, Europe and Republic of Korea as a Japanese person has enhanced my diverse point of view.
I have a degree in advanced fashion design from a college in Japan; however, I wanted to continue my education in the United States, in an environment that promotes individuality, to better accomplish one of my goals of becoming a journalist.
These are my hobbies: I love martial arts, and I have a black belt in JKA Karate. I also love Japanese calligraphy, and I have a license to teach this beautiful art.
My life philosophy is to “be real” as I endeavor to achieve my goals.
