What do you like most about your job at NMU?

I am excited to work with international students at NMU to support them to adjust to U.S. cultures. I also cannot wait for getting know international students at NMU.

One crazy thing you have done.

When I was 9 years old, I went to Canada with a couple of Japanese high school students, but without my family, because I wanted to eat airplane meal. It was not tasty though.....
