Japan: Work, Life, and Fun

By Juanita L. Schrodt

Himeji CastleKathryn Callahan, a 2016 alumna, will be sharing her life and work experiences during her talk scheduled for Thursday, November 29, at 4:30 in Irvin Hall 040. Her talk is entitled "Japan: Work, Life, and Play." This event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served. We hope to see you there.

Kathryn attended Miami while she was still a high school student in the PSEO program, taking Japanese classes her junior and senior year. She continued to study Japanese once she entered Miami University, and double majored as an International Studies and EALC student. She enrolled in a study abroad program to Japan the Fall of 2013 and studied at Kansai Gaidai University. Living with a host family there granted her a rare opportunity to really see and understand the day-to-day life of the Japanese. After graduating in 2016, she accepted a two-year position working for an English teaching company near Hiroshima city. She has now returned to the U.S. and is applying for the MFA program in Creative Writing for fiction.

This event is co-sponsored by the Center for Career Exploration and the Department of German, Russian, Asian, and Middle Eastern Languages and Cultures.
