Currently, I am a double major in Linguistics and Japanese with a specialization in TESL (Teaching English as a Second Language) and translation at Calvin College. If you couldn’t tell from my major, I hope to be a linguist, fostering communication between English- and Japanese-speaking locales. If I don’t have that opportunity, I’d always be happy doing more translation work or helping a tourism agency that assists non-native speakers. If I somehow come across a miraculous, money-spawning tree, I’ll go and get a PhD in Japanese so I can finally create a Japanese program at a private college and give students more options for pursuing the study of the Japanese language through private education. Wait, scratch that. I’d take cuttings from the money-spawning tree so I could plant more of them, THEN go get a PhD.
There’s no better way to learn more about yourself than to learn about others — that’s why I’m a traveler. Don’t let anything stop you; if you waited for everything to fall into place before walking out your door, you’d never leave. Every day is an adventure. When I get to choose my way, I take the path less traveled by.
