She did not know why but she knew she wanted to live and study one day in Japan. “At the age of seven, I requested my father to buy me a Japanese dictionary,” she said. “I self-learned Japanese, watching anime and manga.” By the time she was ready for university, she had developed a comprehensive interest in Japanese history, culture and art.
