Nozomi Mikata teaches Japanese at Fusion. She received her Bachelor’s degree from California State University, Long Beach. She studied abroad in Japan for a year during her undergrad, and went to teach English for a year in Japan after she graduated. She has worked as a Japanese teacher at a community center for two years.
Nozomi is a homebody and enjoys spending her time reading a book, binge-watching Netflix, or playing board games. On occasion, she enjoys hiking (but nothing over 5 miles, thank you.) She is very scared of heights. On her hike on the Castle Rock Trail, she climbed a rock formation to enjoy a beautiful view, but was unable to climb down. It took the help of two others and a lot of crawling.
