I'm An Okada from Japan. I'm a senior at Sonoma State University in California and I'm majoring English Literature. I transferred from Lakeland College Japan to Sonoma State last year.
I am the person who likes to challenge different things. Since coming to Sonoma State, I have worked at Center for International Education as a student ambassador, promoting studying abroad on campus. During winter break, I joined Alternative Spring Breaks trip and was a part of volunteer activities for sustainability in Humboldt County. My hobbies are dancing and traveling.
I'm so excited to write for the blog because I just like writing in English. Last semester, I was interning at Sonoma State Center for Community Engagement and writing a blog about events at Sonoma State and its community. I really liked this internship and I really wanted to keep my blog! Also, because I would like to become a television broadcaster or a journalist in the future, I thought writing a blog is the best opportunity for me to improve my skills for my goal.
In conclusion, this is my first blog article and I'm a little bit nervous now. But, at the same time, I'm so excited to write about many different topics of my California school life! Thank you for reading this article!
