Von McKnight

My name is Von McKnight. I’m a sophomore considering a major in linguistics. I have a deep passion for foreign languages. My initial interests in Japan stemmed from the language, which I started learning in the eighth grade and kept up with for nearly five years (I have since taken a break to take a stab at learning Russian). Video games were how I first got exposed to Japan. Because of my Japanese teacher and her unwavering love and passion for Japan, I became interested in learning more about Japan myself. Especially its culture, which I must admit I know very little about since up until now I’ve primarily focused on the language.
