Despite being born in Tokyo, I have always lived in North London, and I love being a Londoner. Three of the things that make me happiest are sports, food and friends & family. London is of course home to the best football club in the world, Arsenal FC, for which I painfully part with my season ticket. However, I look forward to discovering the many sports teams in Houston. London also boasts amazing places to treat yourself to food and drink, from Michelin star restaurants to street food in Borough Market. I am excited to delve into the flavours of Texas! Finally of course, my friends and family, who are almost as excited as I am for the adventure I embark on and the new horizons I will explore.
I have always loved to explore new places and in August 2017 I spent an amazing three weeks travelling Colombia. From abseiling down waterfalls, cliff jumping and white water rafting to drifting carefree in the Caribbean Sea to taking in the culture of the three major Colombian cities. It was a trip that I will never forget and inspired me to take on many more adventures.
