Hello, my name is Maki Hasegawa. I am the ISN Japanese Translator.
I am a junior student at Western Washington University in Bellingham, Washington, USA, majoring Environmental Science.
I came to the United States in the spring of 1999 after I graduated from a Japanese high school in Japan. I came to the US to study Environmental Science in English and to learn how the environmental systems work in the US.
I graduated from South Puget Sound Community College in Olympia, Washington in 2002. I obtained Associate of Arts degree and Associate of Science degree there.
I have always been interested in doing a volunteer work with translation since I can speak Japanese. I have done some personal help by translating for other international students and native Americans, but I thought I would like to do it continuously by joining an organization.
I feel that this is a great opportunity for me to help people as much as I can. I would also like to learn more about scleroderma, since I have little knowledge of it. I am hoping to gain my knowledge as I bring more information to people. Please feel free to contact me with any questions. I will be more than happy to answer you.
