Program Manager of MIIS Lion
I’m the current (2012 – 2013) Program Manager of MIIS Lion – a localization start-up where students can put what they have learned in class into practice. I was also the Japanese Project Manager of the organization a year ago, and my interests include languages (learning or translating!), social media, and marketing.
I am a MATLM 2013 candidate in the Japanese program. I have never lived in Japan, but I spent 12 years studying Japanese and ended up working for Japan National Tourism Organization after obtaining my B.A.. While working for JNTO, I realized my career goal/dream is to fully integrate language/localization services with marketing. I am excited to take on new challenges and expand our organization further this year!
