Hajimemashite! My name is Jinn, born in South
Korea, and raised in The Netherlands. For as long as I remember I have been blessed with a love and passion for the Japanese language and culture. A passion that led to my decision to study the Japanese language, which I have learned to master over the past few years. This has brought me so many fun and great experiences, that I would like to share this with you.
Ever since I was a child, I have always had a head for languages. I was told that when I was 4 years old, nothing on the kitchen table was safe from my grabbing hands. I had to take it and read the text on it, no matter how uninteresting! It was just that I loved to read.
These were the first signs of my passion for languages, which over te years developed into only one and very particular focus: Japan.
