About the Instructor: What began as Samantha Chan watching anime has grown into a passion for the language and the culture. Since studying Japanese at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, she has participated in and held many language tables and learning events as part of the Chicago Japanese Language Meetup group for a little over 6 years, with the last 4 in the role of chief Organizer. Samantha also volunteers as an Assistant Department Head for Guest Assistants at Anime Central and, in particular, makes sure the Japanese guests feel welcome and the Assistant Interpreters under her watch have the tools to support the guests as well. Her interpretation work is not limited to Anime Central; in addition to having staffed Anime Expo and staffing Taiyou Con 2018, she translates documents and interprets at Chicago, Madison and Tokyo exhibitions for the company known as Takmi and the group of Hokkaido artists they support--next year will be the 5th year working with them.
