Yours truly in her finest form

I’m Alyssa, or Ari. I’m an aspiring Japanese teacher and a freelance writer at The Japanese Pearl. I hold a B.A. in Japanese Studies from Willamette University and am moving to Japan in 2019.

I currently have several poems, short stories, and a novel in the works. I’m not published yet, but I’m working on changing that. On here I write things that could be called fiction or poetry or personal narrative.
