Introduction

Hi, my name is Lydia!
I am half Japanese and Ethiopian. I can speak English and Japanese. I was born in Japan, and was brought up abroad from the ages of 4 until 18. However, I returned to Japan for university. I am currently a third year student at Sophia University majoring in sociology and anthropology.
In Tokyo, I was a kids fitness instructor for two years, for children aged 6 months to 13 years old. In this role I led classes where we played various games, sang songs, and other activities. I also taught at an English cram school and taught as an at home English tutor for junior high school aged students.
I enjoy playing with children, whether it be games, arts and crafts or whatever they would like to do! I also like animals, so would love to work with families with pets.
