Introducing the 2020-2021 FuJET Council!

President — Maya McTighe

Hello everyone!  My name is Maya McTighe and I’ll be your FuJET president for 2020-2021. I’m from Seattle, Washington and I’ve been living in Minami Aizu for the past three years. When I’m not at school I’m usually playing Animal Crossing, doing judo, or napping. I also love exploring Fukushima and seeing friends on weekends, but I haven’t been able to do too much of that in recent months. I’m excited to meet you all and do all the exploring once it’s safe to do so!

Our goal this year is to find ways to bring people together and provide opportunities to explore Fukushima while still being safe. Due to the increasing number of cases throughout Japan, this likely means exclusively virtual get togethers for the moment. We will continue to monitor the situation and hopefully will be able to plan in-person events in the future. In the meantime, please don’t hesitate to use FuJET as a resource for all things Fukushima and Japan related. We plan to roll out new resources in the coming months to make ALT life easier. We’re here to support you in anything you need!! Reach out to us anytime.

Stay safe and I’m looking forward to seeing you all! Read more
