My name is Katie. I was born in Japan.
After I studied Linguistics at university, I worked for a software company in Tokyo. Although I had dreamt to live overseas since childhood, in my twenties, I was far too busy with work and the years went by so fast. When I was 32, I studied abroad for a few months in England, then the following year I spent three months studying again in Switzerland, and the year after that I stayed in Switzerland again!
In 2015, I finally started my full-time studies at a grad school in England. I am now based in the East of England doing my PhD studies in Health Communication and teaching the Japanese language and culture at university.
