Hi, I’m Kristen. (You can also call me Mariko) I was born and raised in San Francisco and I’m a native English speaker.
My grandparents are from Osaka but they immigrated to the US and never taught my father Japanese. It’s important to me to learn so I’m studying Japanese and would love to find a language exchange partner! I’m still a beginner and working toward being conversational. I’d be happy to help with English in return:)
Some of my hobbies are cooking and baking, reading, photography, traveling, drinking coffee, eating at new restaurants, watching sports, TV and movies.
