Hi everyone, I’m Val! I’m originally from southern California but I came to Japan in early 2016 to finish my degree here in Tokyo. Studying and living abroad has been a dream of mine for several years and I’m very happy to be here and experiencing new things every day! I have been interested in languages and culture since I was very young and I currently study both Japanese and Korean language at my university. I love travelling, meeting new people, and learning new things about the world. I’m also really interested in a lot of different music genres and love animals, especially cats. I like talking about all kinds of things and I’m excited to get to know you!
