My Travel Story

Hello! I'm Natalie, a 22 year old from the USA who is very interested in earning her TEFL degree in order to teach English in Tokyo, Japan! I've been very actively learning Japanese for the last three years and feel like I'm ready to take the dive and finally immerse myself in the place where I can finally use the language skills I've been building up.

Translation and Japanese culture is my passion. I spent two years earning my certificate in IT and while I enjoyed it while it lasted, I've finally come to realize what it is I want to do: work and experience living in Japan, a place where I've always felt was a home away from home.

I would love to be a native English speaker who can also speak and help my students understand English in a deeper way with the ability to speak to them in Japanese. This will also help me build my skills in actively speaking Japanese and create a learning experience for both of us!
I hope to one day make it to Tokyo, and I hope to be able to kickstart this new chapter in my life in a more meaningful way. Thank you so much for reading this!
