I am an awkwardly giggly nerd who plays with data by day and games as my alter-ego, AriMoon, by night. I also enjoy traveling, reading, watching movies… not really keen on long walks on the beach but I can handle a stroll. Three years of my childhood were spent in Japan, then another two years again as an adult, though my Japanese is now conversational at best. However, I can go on for days about Studio Ghibli movies. Again, nerd! I started at the Annex Teen Clinic as a volunteer to save my sanity from being a stay-at-home mom and I haven’t looked back since! Being more in the background, I get to see all aspects of the clinic and all the different ways it improves young people’s lives. It’s quite awesome, in every meaning of the word.
