Although I moved around a lot, I had a pretty normal education up until grade 7 where I went to a private school (Waverley College) for 2 years before moving to another school (Glenwood Public High School) for a semester, and then another school (Ryde Secondary College) up until grade 11 where I dropped out and studied Japanese for a year and a half at North Sydney TAFE (Ultimo). Using my Japanese education, I got into a Diploma of Language in Japanese at Macquarie university where I used a pathway program to get into a Bachelor of Arts in Japanese studies. This then turned into a BoA Japanese Major Creative Writing Minor. My education was…fun!
