Sara in Tokyo

Hi! My name is Sara MacConnell and I'm studying abroad in Tokyo in Fall 2018. I've been taking Japanese classes since I was a freshman in high school, so I'm very excited to spend a whole semester getting to put my language skills to use! I'm a rising senior at the University of Puget Sound where I study Japanese and Business Administration. On campus, I'm involved in greek life, I'm the publicity chair for Students Against Sexual Assault, I do costume design for the theater department, and I work in my school's study abroad office. My favorite things to do are photography, hiking, cooking, trying new restaurants, and watching Netflix with my friends.

Term: Fall 2018

Favorite thing about going abroad?

I went to Japan briefly when I was 16, so I am thrilled to have the chance to stay longer and really immerse myself in the country. I look forward to exploring Tokyo and other cities in Japan, and finding great restaurants, shrines, temples, museums, and the beautiful nature the country has to offer.
