World Languages and Cultures
Alisha Romano, JLC, 2020
After graduating from the WLC department in 2020, I went to the University of South Florida to pursue my Masters in Women's and Gender Studies. During my time there I was able to work as a graduate assistant and develop units for the introductory course. While I worked at USF I was able to teach students about Japanese feminist practices and histories. I graduated with my Masters in 2022 and wanted to be able to continue teaching students about Japan, so I applied to teach at CSUMB in the WLC department. I am now working in the department and furthering my students' knowledge about Japan and Japanese culture as well as Japanese feminism. I am really enjoying being able to tie together my two degrees in ways that aid my students' learning.
