About Ai


I am a recent graduate from the University of Georgia-- Linguistics AB, French AB, Summa Cum Laude with Highest Honors. I am a freelance translator and soon-to-be graduate student in Linguistics. My heritage is Japanese, but I was raised and educated in the United States since the age of 6. I have native fluency in both Japanese and American English, and high proficiency in standard French. I hope to contribute to the TED community by making use of my rare, balanced bilingualism.
