I never knew what I was passionate about until I was in 8th grade. At first, I wanted to be a physical therapist assistant.

If I am given the opportunity to major in this field, I know I will highly enjoy it because it really sparks my interest. I love it so much I joined Manga Club. I eventually became the Vice President of Manga Club because I love it so much. There is never a day I don’t enjoy going to the club and seeing the members and catching up on things. Currently, we are learning about the Japanese culture through games such as Jeopardy or we have fun games such as charades or Pictionary. I am also making slideshows to teach the club about Japanese Tea Ceremony, mochitsuki (mochi pounding), and handmade noodles. The other administrators and I have planned out a modernized Japanese Tea Ceremony demonstrated by me and another admin that we will be performing the day we are presenting the information about Japanese Tea Ceremonies.
