My name is Miranda, but I go by Mandi most of the time. I’m from Juneau, Alaska and have been accepted into the JET Program! I can’t wait to start this new chapter in my life! I’ve been to Japan two times before; the first time in 2011-2012 for study abroad with my college and the second time in the Spring/Summer of 2014 for Eikaiwa work!
I’ve always wanted to go to Japan ever since I was really young and when I was in college my dream came true! My dream after finally waiting 10+ year to go to Japan was to work in Japan on the JET Program. Unfortunately, I graduated at a really odd time so I couldn’t do it last year. So, here we are this year! And I’m off on a new adventure!
I love pretty much anything about Japan; music, food, TV, movies, and so much more! Though out of all of the things I love about Japan, I love music the most! I’m an avid Visual Kei fan! I also love to cook Japanese food and experiment with new recipes. I also love hockey! Go San Jose Sharks!
I started this blog to document my journey with the JET Program; I hope any future JET’s out there find it helpful in the years to come! Please comment or message me if you have any questions or if you just want to talk! I love meeting new people!
