  • Descripción

    Hello! I'm Jolie and I'm a 24-year-old travel, food and culture enthusiast.
    I graduated from uni with a bachelors of science in Human Physiology studying the mechanical, physical, and biochemical functions that determine the health of an individual.
    I am passionate about health and had always wanted to go down the medical school route. However, in recent years I've become more interested in nutrition/food science especially with the rising global hunger crisis.
    Now, I want to engage with NGOs and humanitarian organizations that align with the UN's Sustainable Developmental Goals.

    I've worked many oddball jobs since graduating from uni and moving to Japan last year (2020). I've worked in hospitality (hostels, hotels), food customer service (pizza restaurant, bartending), teaching English as a freelancer and in after-school programs, teaching cooking and fitness classes, babysitting, etc.

    I enjoy learning new things and keeping an open-mind.

    My current goal right now is to let go of fear, create lasting connections with people, discover different cultures and hidden gems across the world -- all while documenting it along the way (through writing, videos and photos!)

    I'm genuinely open to anything! I love to communicate and get to know people from all over :)

  • Que habilidades tienes?

    I enjoy being creative! I've done Japanese calligraphy and various art projects in the past. From making coffee cups and bowls in ceramics class in high school to making origami shadow boxes for an Art Gala.

    I'm an avid homecook. I love tasting different cuisines and trying new recipes. Growing up in a Western household with Japanese influences (I'm half Japanese), I ate and learned to cook a lot of Japanese and South Asian-style dishes. Thai curries, Vietnamese Banh mi sandwiches, makizushi (type of rolled sushi), Singapore rice noodles, etc.
    I've also recently learned how to make bread and pastas from scratch.

    Teaching and tutoring:
    I have experience in tutoring and teaching children, teens, and adults! I was a peer tutor in college for English, Japanese, Anatomy and Human Physiology classes. I have also been teaching in Japan for the past year and a half as a freelancer and through an international English school for preschool and elementary school children.

    Customer service:
    As a hotel receptionist in Kyoto, Japan, I was responsible for checking in guests, making reservations, supplying guests with amenities, cleaning and answering questions.
