I was born in Sao Paulo, Brazil, but when I was 14 my parents decided to immigrate to Japan due to Brazil's economy downturn. Since then I have a passion about Languages and I love everything about Japan.
I got married in 2001 with the best husband in the whole world. He is Brazilian, but served a LDS mission in Kobe, Japan. We have 2 kids, Kendi who is 8 and Kalena who is 4.
I finished my Masters degree at BYU in 2007 and I love to work teaching Japanese at American Fork High School. I've been teaching there since 2006.
