Hi I'm Ai

I am 2.5 lingual, born and raised in Japan. I love food and jokes from all over the world. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

There are six people in my family. My parents, me, two younger sisters and a younger brother. I grew up on a farm. So, I love potatoes, beets, sheep and all that have to do with nature. My hobbies are reading, playing the piano, singing, cooking, playing sports and learning languages. In school, I loved English class and studied English really hard. Then, I studied Russian in university for two years, but my Russian is not as good as my English. I learn languages from textbooks, movies, music, internet, radio, friends, and many other resources. I also love teaching English to other people. I used to work as an English teacher in an Eikaiwa (English studying) school, and I loved it!

Why I am a Mormon

My parents are both members, so I have been in this church since I was born. I came to know that this church is true through my own experiences. It is hard to be a Christian In Japan sometimes, because there are not many Christians in Japan and there are some misunderstandings about Christianity, but I am happy that I have the gospel in my life.

How I live my faith

I am now serving as a missionary in Tokyo South Mission. Before my mission, I served as an organist and a ward missionary. I am always trying to be more like Jesus, which gives me more happiness and joy in life.
