Allen in Tokyo

Hailing from Southern California, I traveled the (not so) great distance of seven miles to attend Occidental College in Los Angeles. At Oxy, my coursework in American Studies and Sociology allows me to explore American history, literature, and culture. While abroad, I aim to broaden my understanding of the American experience, improve my Japanese, and grow as an individual.

Favorite thing about going abroad?

Having studied Japanese all throughout high school and a semester in college, I should be more proficient in the language, but I am grateful and excited to continue learning Japanese through IES Tokyo! In particular, the added component of the Field Placement (location: TBA!) will allow me to have an immersive experience with Japanese culture outside of the university setting.
