Hello, my name is Chase Richardson and I will be a Sophomore for the 2017-2018 School Year. My hometown is Franklin, Indiana. Franklin may not be the most known, but hey at least we have a roller rink! (That’s about all we have) I am currently dual majoring in Japanese Language and Culture with Linguistics as my second major. I really enjoy Japanese culture and learning more about the differences compared to American culture. I plan to study abroad my junior year in Japan to fully immerse myself in the language and culture! One of my long-term goals in addition to fluency in Japanese is to travel to Ireland for 10 years to develop my Irish accent further! After college, I plan to attain a career as both a Translator and Interpreter for the Japanese language. I am excited for my first year as a FASE mentor. Here’s to a momentous year!
