Tell me something interesting about yourself

I am a polyglot and can speak up to 6 different languages with different levels of fluency. I have lived in many countries, covering the far east (Tokyo) to the west (USA). This has given me great respect for other cultures and I’ve come to truly admire the different ways of life.
