Hello everyone!

I am the current Discover Nikkei intern this summer at the Japanese American National Museum as part of the Nikkei Community Internship Program.

I'm going into my 3rd year at UC Berkeley as an Integrative Biology Major. I am the Community Service Chair for Cal's NSU and am also a member of the Cal Yosakoi team :)

I love going new places and trying new things, listening to and playing music, dancing at obon festivals, and cooking

I'm looking forward to discovering new ways to give back to my community and learning more about my Japanese American history.
