My name is Janet Mingo. I am sophomore, Kinesiology/Exercise Science major at Norfolk State University located in Norfolk, Virginia. And this summer I am taking the path less taken by studying abroad to Tokyo, Japan through KCP Intensive Lanquage Immersion Program. I have taken Japanese 111 at Norfolk State University, and I am currently enrolled in the Japanese 112 course, so that I could be as familiar as I can with the culture, and language before I arrive to Japan on June 23, 2013. I have always had a passion to learn Japanese because my great-grandfather was Nihonjin( a Japanese person), and my grandfather was as well but unfortuntely he died when my mother was 7, so non of the traditions were passed down. So I plan on learning alot through KCP during my program dates ( June 23,2013-August 15,2013). So if you can please donate, and help my achieve this mission.
