Hello, everyone! I'm Julie and I’ve been living in Japan collectively for two years. In college, I studied at Kansai Gaidai University in Osaka and graduated with a Bachelor in International Studies with a Concentration on Asia. Now, I’m working in Gifu prefecture as an ALT through a private company. I love traveling not only around Japan, but around the world as well. Other than traveling I enjoy writing, cooking, sewing and playing video games. If you have time, make sure to check out my twitter as well!
