Hi, my name is Karin and I'm from Japan. My dad is from Japan and my mum is from Hong Kong, so I'm an Asian mix. My first language is Japanese and I moved to Hong Kong when was 12. Went to several Japanese schools until I was 15. After that, I went to International schools in Hong Kong, Japan, and I went to a boarding school my junior & senior years in PA. I've been playing football for almost 13 years and I'm currently on the women's soccer team at SLU. I'm a big fan of Manchester City and it's unfortunate that not many girls watch the Prem, but I hope to meet some city fans here. I came to the US to mostly play football, but also to improve my English and experience life as a university student in the US. It's definitely a different life than in Japan/Hong Kong and I cannot wait to see how it's like here. I'm very excited to spend 4 years at SLU and am looking forward to making more friends.

私の名前は石川伽琳です。今年18歳で日本の学年で言えば大1の歳です。自分は日本と香港のハーフで、日本の地元は千葉です。香港にも住んでいて、広東語もしゃべれます。約13年間サッカーやって、この学校に来た理由もサッカーが理由の一つです。高校最後の2年間アメリカの寮生高校行っててそのまま大学もアメリカ行こうと思って決めました。正直今はサッカーと勉強の両立が大変だけど、4年間もあるのでそのうち慣れていければいいなと思っています。高2の一学期だけ千葉の木更津にある暁星国際高校ってところに行ってました。寮に住んでサッカー部もやっていたのでSLUでの生活はあんまり変わらないなと感じています。もしもあったら声かけてね。
