Here’s a little bit about Sophie, one of the students in the first DAMES graduate program cohort!
Tell us about yourself!
I graduated from Davidson College in 2020 where I majored in English and East Asian Studies. After graduation I had planned to teach English in Japan through the JET Program, but due to COVID, I ended up staying in North Carolina and worked as a college adviser this past year.
I’m interested in pre-modern Japanese art history, as well as East Asian history as a whole. When I’m not studying, I love taking care of my excessive number of house plants.
Which track in our grad program are you studying?
What are you hoping to accomplish here in DAMES, and here at Carolina?
I hope to increase my grasp of Japanese, do lots of research, and make connections with other people in the Carolina community.
