Hello! I’m Ashlee Parks. I’m a senior, majoring in Travel and Tourism and minoring in Japanese as well as Peace Studies. I was born and raised in Mishawaka, Indiana, a small city up north near South Bend. The summer after my senior year of high school I went to Japan with my Japanese teacher and several classmates, and it stole my heart away. I hope to return someday.
I’m looking forward to this semester! Cheers!
