Howzit! I am your new HAJET Central Representative,Thea. I'm a fun-loving first year JET from the warm waters of Hawai‘i (həˈvɐjʔi). Before coming to Japan, I studied Linguistics and Japanese Studies. Passionate for adventure, nature, SNOW, and wildlife, Hokkaido is my ideal placement. I additionally enjoy Asian pop-culture, cooking, drawing, learning other cultures and languages, and videogames. I reside in Mukawa-cho (town-neighbors with Collin), where it’s famous for the rare tasty Shishamo "Smeltfish". As central representative, I want to provide everyone with assistance when needed and share the fun. Also, if you know a beach that you can swim in and want to do a BBQ somewhere during the warmer months, hit me up!
