High school student in Virginia
My name is Misa Mori, and I am a 16-year-old junior from Oakton High School in Vienna, Virginia. I am half-Japanese and half-Kenyan, and bilingual in Japanese and English. I travel to Japan every summer, and think of Japan as my second home. I am involved in varsity volleyball, American Youth Philharmonic Orchestra (I play the viola), Red Cross, Key Club, and I am the vice president of the National Beta Club at my school. My favorite subjects are Psychology and Art, and my hobbies include reading, drawing and tumblr. My dream is to become a translator and live in Japan. I am honored to have been given this opportunity to be published in the Huffington Post!
