Greetings, I’m Lexie Lucero-Carter. Sophomore at The College of William and Mary. Linguistics major. Japanese minor. I’ve been studying the Japanese language since my freshman year of high school, and have been more or less aware of Japan through means of anime, manga, and video games since elementary school. Since attending college, I’ve taken several Japanese language courses, a course on Japanese monster mythology, and a course on Japanese modern/contemporary literature. As these courses have given me new background on Japan that I couldn’t receive through Japanese pop-fiction alone, I hope to take more in the rest of my years at the college.
I enjoy drawing, and have been (unsurprisingly) influenced by various anime and manga styles. I like learning things about comics as a means of storytelling.
