Nancy Rose


Nancy was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. Her fascination for Japanese language and culture motivated her to study abroad at ICU and Osaka University for almost two years. This experience deepened her love for Japan even further, leading her back in 2019 to work as a Coordinator for International Relations at Katori City Hall. She is passionate about traditional Asian performing arts and has practiced Chinese violin, Vietnamese lion, dragon, and hat dancing, and Japanese archery and koto, among other things. She also loves animals, music, and urban dancing.
