I am Lecturer in the Department of Japanese Studies at the National University of Singapore, where I have been teaching for 2.5 years. I teach courses on Japan’s geography and history, including a field study to Japan each year. This course always reminds me of my study abroad experiences at Central (Hangzhou, Yucatan, San Sebastian), which were transformative. Earlier this month I received two teaching awards, and both committees highlighted my overseas course. Thanks to Central for the continued inspiration!
