Hi! My name is Tiffany Simmons. I’m the youngest child from a single parent home with one older sister. I am an eighteen-year old African-American, and I study Art at Georgia Southern University (GSU). My interests are drawing, painting, reading both modern and classical romances, and learning about Japanese culture and language. I plan to spend a year studying abroad at the Nagoya University of Foreign Studies (NUFS) in Japan through their exchange program with GSU. This time abroad is designed to deepen my knowledge of the Japanese language and culture while preparing me for my future academic and professional goals.
