My name is Chani, and my English name is Leon. Just call Leon freely. I am going to introduce myself what kind of person I am first. I am a knowledge-oriented person; for example, I like learning academic things like psychology, brain science, mathematics, computer science, politics, English, etc. Six months ago, I started to have an interest in artificial intelligence. This relates to things that I want to do in the future.
What I want to do after graduating from university is to work as a data scientist because of personal preference, meaning I like the work a data scientist does. A data scientist is a professional data engineer who collects and analyzes extremely large amounts of data and builds artificial intelligence based on the processed data to predict the future by using mathematical methods. Do you think we cannot foresee the future, don’t you.
It is not perfectly correct, but mathematics gives some ground. For example, I did not leave Japan to receive class because I researched statistics indicating the transition of corona-virus infection ratio in Korea. I started to have a firm belief that it might be tough to do an online class this semester by comparing patterns of spreading coronavirus. Well, it is not a perfect prediction, just a statistical decision. So when the school makes a decision to do the offline class, you can laugh at me.
Lastly, I will talk about a thing that I hope to be. I want to be a person who can distinguish what kind of content people want to talk about when communicating with others. For example, it is kind of difficult to understand the women for me. As far as I know from my life, the whole women want to get sympathy. It is not for all women. But there is the kind of tendency I feel.
On the other hand, I want to talk about academic things or how to solve problems. Men and Women are different, and I have been dealing with comprehending women’s minds for a long time. But it is still hard for me. So, I can say understanding women’s minds is the whole purpose or kind of dream for me.
neighborhood – Let’s talk about where you live. Tell me what you like and don’t like about your neighborhood.
I live in Tokyo in Japan. Tokyo is a country with the highest population density in the world. That means there are immeasurable people and cars. These factors harm the human body and mind. For instance, suppose that you are in a big city, you should pay attention to the other people. In Tokyo, I know there are vast problems every day relating to the neighborhood. The commonality of the problem is that the neighborhood makes noise and disturbs people’s life.
I was actually one of the victims. One day, a neighborhood made a loud noise. I was really annoyed and went to the room to say” it was noisy”. I warned the neighborhood, “if you did this again, I call the police”. After 15 minutes passed, he did again, and I decided to call the police. The event was repeated three times, and the neighborhood moved. So, that is a thing I do not like in the neighborhood. Of course, I know a good neighborhood exists. However, I never met the kind of good person. So, there is no point that I like about the neighborhood. It really depends on what type of person you will meet. However, I never. So, the image of the neighborhood is negative. But, I hope negative images will turn out to be positive.
Weekend – What things do you usually do on the weekend? Do you watch TV? Do you catch up on sleep? What else do you do on the weekend?
I do not usually watch TV because I do not have a TV in my house. I basically learn academic things through books, the internet because I like learning something and accumulating knowledge. For example, I spend time learning psychology, brain science, computer science, mathematics, artificial intelligence.
Recently, I have been learning artificial intelligence because of my personal preference, which means stimulating my desire for knowledge. Artificial intelligence was made by referring to the human brain. I have been interested in the brain since I was a child. So, Artificial intelligence is interesting for me.
Fundamentally, I spent learning something on the weekend. But I hang out with friends sometimes. But, my friends are also knowledge-oriented people. So, I talked about academic things with friends, the same as spending time alone. I feel convenient in the group and am satisfied with my friends since they offer valuable information as same as I do. Those are things that I do on the weekend.
RESTAURANT – Describe one of your favorite restaurants where you often go to eat. What type of food do they serve there? What do you like about that restaurant?
Saizeriya is the place where I often visit. Saizeriya is a chain of Italian restaurants in Japan where serve a variety of Italian foods like spaghetti, pizzas, Gelato, and so on.
What I like about this restaurant is the price. Since the tax increased from 5% to 10% and the coronavirus deteriorated the economy, commodity prices (the price of living) boosted compared to the past. Nevertheless, Saizeriya did not raise the food prices at all while other restaurants did.
The second point that I like about Saizeriya is the taste. Foods that Saizeriya serves are not authentic Italian taste, but taste Japanese liked. In spite of that, the taste is much better than the other restaurants.
The last point is the variety of the menu. Not only Saizeriya serves Italian foods, but it does other foods, for instance, Japanese foods and France foods. The excellent point is that I can choose any of the foods depending on my mood.
So, I went to Saizeriya because of the reasonable price, the tasty foods, and many types of foods.
FAMILY – Tell me how you spend time with your family or friends. Do you go to parks? Do you chat on the phone? What do you normally do to keep in touch and spend time with family and friends?
Basically, I spend time with friends more than family because I am a knowledge-oriented person. I like interacting with people with academic knowledge that I do not know. I mean, my friends have more academic information than my family. That is the reason I spend time with friends often.
I and my friends or my family seldom go to a park because there is no park around the place where I live. But, I chat on the phone with friends and my family. What I am doing to keep in touch and spend with family and friends is to get academic or interesting information for my friends and my family because they like listening to the information. I often communicate with my friends to exchange opinions and do with my family to offer some subjects to talk about when having a meal.
Well, I interact with friends often but also pay attention to spending time with family to communicate.
Who were your parents? What do they do? What were your parents like? Describe them. How was your relationship with your parents?
My father is Korean, and my mother is Japanese. My father is a sushi chef, and my mother is expanding a business that I am not sure about. My parents are ordinary parents, just as same as the other parents are. Though there is a condition I do not know about them a lot, I know a little thing about them. They are kind and generous to people compared to me. They give a positive impression like “they are good parents.” However, they become troublesome sometimes because they behave based on their emotion, while I do not. That is why I suppose that there is no good chemistry between my parents and me.
The relationship between my parents and me is positive, I guess. But, I do not try to talk to them often. When only I have matters to talk about, I do. At the same time, they try to talk to me. So, I answer something feedback, resulting in generating communication. That is why I regard the relationship between my parents and me are good objectively.
From the perspective of subjectivity, I do not try to make good relationships with them because I have no interest in them. I evaluate someone whether the person talks interesting story or information. For example, I like learning academic things like psychology, brain science, computer science, mathematics, artificial intelligence, and so on, or I like listening to interesting stories. I do not care what the story will be. My parents do not have the sort of stories, as far as I know. That is the reason I do not try to talk to them.
SHOPPING – Tell me about your favorite store to shop at. What is the name of the store, and what kind of store is it? What do you like about that store?
My favorite store is Kaldy. Kadly is a store where sells a variety of foreign foods such as foods from Korea, Phillliphine, Taiwan, Newzealand, Malaysia, India, the U.S, and so on.
As I introduced, Kaldy is my favorite store because of the wide variety of products. When I visit the store, there are always new products from foreign countries and the products make interesting me because I do not see the sort of products in Japan. Commodities from overseas are rare in Japan, where I live.
The most favorite point I feel about Kaldy is that there are plenty of coffee beans I can buy at the store. This is my personal preference that I really like tasting coffee. Kaldy sells more than 50 kinds of coffee beans, and the taste and smell of coffee are unique.
Above the reason, A lot of products from other countries and abundance of varieties of coffee beans, I say my favorite store is Kaldy.
SPORTS – Can you describe a sporting event you’ve been to? What was the event? What was the game like? What was the final outcome of the game?
I entered in football competition when I was a high school student. The soccer competition was like playing football against the other team was composed by the tournament. I want to talk about my team and the short history because this is really important to let you move your mind.
My team was really weak because almost all of the team members did not have significant motor nerves(reflexes) compared with the other soccer team. Our coach knew the condition and taught a strategy to beat the other team. The strategy was taking positions. You know football is a team sport. Individual ability is an important factor in leading a team to victory. Our team did not have notable talents. However, our coach taught us to take the position instead of improving our physical ability.
After experiencing the training, our team entered in football competition and won 4times. Isn’t it impressive because our team has never won since I started to belong to the team? The victory of the team was impressive for us. After the competition, we received the bronze medal.
INTERNET – Tell me about your favorite type of website to visit. Why do you like it? Give me as many details as you can.
One of my favorite websites I visit often is Karapaia. Karapaia is a kind of comprehensive information website, offering different types of academic issues and international news.
I frequently browse Karapaia because it offers attractive information. For example, there was an article about the latest IT technology. It is about connecting the brain to the internet. Even more, there was an article that a monkey could have played the game without a game controller. The monkey controls the player in the game by its brain waves.
The other intriguing news was about an article, relating to psychology. For example, you can get information from the newest thesis to easy skills or tips of psychology, such as how to manipulate people’s minds, the way to improve your self-esteem, how to control your own’s emotions and etc.
It is a Japanese website, but it offers English articles by translating English into Japanese. So, it is easy to read the article for even Japanese who are not good at English. Overall, my favorite website is Karapaia because it provides a wide variety of information.
MUSIC – You indicated in the survey that you like music. What kind of music do you like, and when do you usually listen to it. Give as many details as you can.
I listen to classical-style music. It is not classic, classic-style. I rarely listen to music such as falk, Jazz, pop, rock, rap. I mean, I do not listen to secular music because it is not comfortable for me.
I listen to music when I want to calm my mind. My routine work is to obtain knowledge such as psychology, brain science, artificial intelligence, and so on. So, I get tired because I keep learning something every single day. Thus, I need to get the rest of my time to heal my tired mind by listening to the classics.
I usually listen to music on the internet by downloading the data from YouTube. For example, I like a composer, Hiroyuki Sawano. He is a Japanese composer and did not make classic, but classic-style music. He worked on making animation music that is heroic and spectacular, and there are so many masterpieces. He composed, for example, he made pieces of music for Gandam, Aldonore Zero.
DENTIST / DOCTOR – Can you tell me how often you go to see a doctor or a dentist? Please tell me what usually happens when you visit your doctor or dentist.
I do not visit to see a doctor or dentist often. I go to the dentist when I have a periodic health examination. Nothing happens during routine checkups, but I communicate with a dentist or dental assistant to kill time because you know it is boring just to keep sitting and receiving treatment.
One of the stories in a dentist is which I asked for a phone number for a dental assistant and got it. However, there is no story between her and me. I just got a phone number. That it is. Communicating with people is really important to become familiar with. The dentist will be eased mentally if there is a kind of bond or recognition of intimacy. So, I focus on communicating with people in the dentist because it can bring about positive psychological effects on people.
TECHNOLOGY – I would like to know how you learned to use a certain skill or technology. Who was it that taught you? How did you learn it? Tell me all the things you had to do to learn how to use that skill or technology.
I learned the way to use a MacBook. I was using a laptop based on windows os. So, I do not have any idea how to use a Macbook. So, I look up how to use a MacBook and what kind of settings are suitable(proper) for battery savers on the internet and YouTube.
I searched for the information, and people who taught me the way to handle a Macbook from YouTube helped me so much. I was really surprised that there is an enormous amount of information about the Macbook on YouTube. I could set up the Macbook without any problems thanks to Youtube.
Another example of this is about inventing artificial intelligence. I am learning an algorithm to create AI. AI is made by Python but, I do not know much information. So, the internet really contributed to inventing AI. Then, I could start working my first job as a data scientist, and I still look up how to make AI on the internet, and it helps so greatly.
I have a few friends who apprehend AI and Python but cannot talk to the friends anytime. So the internet helped me because there are copious knowledge people updated, and I can utilize the material. That is all things I had to do to learn how to use a Macbook and to invent artificial intelligence.
ENGLISH – I would like to know how you first became interested in learning English. When did you start studying it?
I started to be interested in learning English when I had a desire to communicate with people who speak English. It was just a kind of longing to talk with foreigners. After that, I started to have a passion for entering graduate in the U.S because of three reasons.
The first reason is that my personality that likes learning academic things. I have a strong knowledge-desire for studying academic content such as psychology, brain science, artificial intelligence, mathematics and etc. I am an undergraduate student and plan to enroll into graduate in the U.S.
The second reason why I want to learn academic things in the U.S is that the U.S has the latest technology, meaning gathering the newest. I want to enter graduate relating to a study of cognitive psychology or artificial intelligence. These two studies are in progress at the fastest pace in the world. So, I suppose it is suitable to have a passion for learning academic things in the U.S.
The last point is the yearning to get a girlfriend who speaks English. This is just a personal ambition to expand the range. I speak Japanese and Korean. So, there is a large potential possibility which I can get a girlfriend who speaks Japanese or Korean. I wanted to spread the range, and now my English ability increased to be able to communicate in English enough.
So, I started to practice English. The begging was which I had a desire to talk with people who speak English. After that, I got three reasons which I got the motivation to keep learning English because of my personality, which likes learning academic content, a passion which I want to enter graduate in the U.S, a desire to get a girlfriend who speaks English.
SALON – Can you tell me how often you go to a beauty salon or barbershop? Where is it located, and what does it look like? How are the people who work there? Is it expensive to get your hair done there?
I rarely visit the barbershop because I cut my hair by myself. But, I go to the barbershop depending on my mind. I have a favorite barbershop located in a place close to my house. It is like a typical barbershop. There is a signboard of scissors outside of the store and are some chairs for use in cutting hair. And typical stylists who have a refined and sophisticated mood work there. They have a stylish hairstyle, wear fashionable clothes.
I think the price is not so high. It is around 10$ to 20$. But, I do not want to pay any money for cutting hair. So, I started to cut my hair by myself because it is free if I do it by myself. But, I failed to cut my hair sometimes. In case of the situation, I go to the barbershop as a compromise.
Did you get into trouble when you were young? What was the worst thing you did? What is your best memory of childhood?
I often got into trouble since I was young. I am going to introduce the worst things I did and my best memory after that.
I was such a bad boy when I was a kinder garden student. I did not remember why I did such a thing. One day, I felt a kind of excitement to break something at the time. I saw a movie someone broke numerous windows glass. Then, I started to have a desire to break glass windows and came up with a word of the kinder garden. So, I followed the idea and desire and planned to break the kinder garden window. The next morning, I broke a window by throwing a few stones and realized something this would not be good for me if it revealed. I pretended as I was not related, and nobody found out who did that. That is one of the worst things I did.
My best memory is the victory in the volleyball competition. When I was a junior high school, I was one of the members of the volleyball team. I decided to enter the team because I wanted to do sports activities at the time. I had confidence in my motor reflexes, so I guessed I could adapt to the team. But, It was not so easy. The coach trained us so strictly. That was so hard.
So, I looked it up on the internet about my volleyball team (I searched for more information on the internet) and got information that the team was one of the strong and prestigious team in Japan. But, I did not quit. I was not sure the reason, but I kept participating in the training. One day, I heard from the coach that the competition would be held in a few days, and I was selected as a libero even though there were many members who played well than me.
*A libero (LEE’-beh-ro) in indoor volleyball is a back-row defensive specialist. There is no count of the limit of changing.
At the competition, I entered as a player of the teams and did play so hard, and it turned out my team got silver medals in Tokyo prefecture. I was so frustrating(annoying) by the result because I put up with the severe training. But, I accepted the result after 10 min passed, and we celebrated each other. That is one of the best memories I have.
Do you have any siblings? What were they like growing up?
I do not have brothers and siblings but an only child. I talk about how I grew up. I did not have any friends to play with because I guess I lacked communication ability or just had such a personality which I liked being alone.
So, I play with myself by making virtual persons or imaginary friends. For example, I liked talking, so I talked with myself about mathematics, fantasy, animation, and things I had interests in. Furthermore, I liked to play card games, so I played tramp, Yugiou, and so on.
I guess growing up as an only child is not so bad compared to having siblings or brothers because I can dominate every resource. I never got to know how the life of having siblings or brothers would be. However, I suppose that an only child is really good. If you want to make friends, you can make them by yourself, meaning improving your imagination’s ability. That is a positive point that I can say. The life of an only child is so good. So if I got to select to be born with the family of having brothers and siblings or not again, I would choose the life of an only child.
Did you have a nickname? How’d you get it?
My friends call me Leon as a nickname. When I received English class, I needed to get a nickname because English professors did not want to call real names in their class. So, I came up with an English name. That was Leon.
Leon was my longing name for me. Do you know Biohazard or Resident Evil? Biohazard is famous for zombie movies and games. Leon appears in the game resident evil as a character. I like him because he is so nice and cool. He has high physical ability and combat skills. I feel the yearning for the character. So, I decided to name myself Leon as a nickname.
Do you have any favorite stories from your childhood?
I do not have a favorite story but, I made it. I was a bad boy when I was a kindergarten student. I hated a childcare worker. I cannot remember the reason but, I remember the emotion.
When I was playing with friends, she pointed out the activity. I did not listen to the word because I hated her. Then, she talked to me, “if you do this again, I’ll call your mother.” So, I stopped the activity. Then, on the way home with my mother, my mother talked to me about the thing that I received a warning about, and I was so surprised that my mother knew the thing. I realized the childcare worker talked to my mother. So, I planned to take revenge to return the kindness.
One morning, I woke up early and went to the kinder garden. I gathered about 50 woodlouse (roly-poly, wild louse) and released them inside the childcare worker’s desk. I hid and saw the reaction behind the window. It was so fun. I was so satisfied. Besides, nobody could find out who did that. That was my favorite story I made.
What makes you happy, and what makes you angry?
I feel happy when I sleep after learning something. I am a knowledge-oriented person and put (place, set) much (great, a high) value on learning academic things, for example, psychology and brain science, mathematics, and computer science. In addition, I feel happy when I interact with friends and exchange knowledge. My routine work is to learn academic things and rarely talk with someone. So, I feel kind of comfort when I communicate with someone because I convey my opinion to someone.
What makes me angry is noise. For example, suppose that I study at an academic thing or want to concentrate on dealing with assignments and someone makes noise or disturbs me, I really feel annoying. I seldom get angry because I do not care about a lot. But, it is completely different when I learn something. I like learning and feel satisfied with the time and process. The meaning that makes noise around me is to take happiness time of me. Maybe, I am a little nervous and sensitive to noise but, I cannot ignore my nature. I used to train to deal with noise and control my emotion for a certain period but, I could not keep doing it, and I realized that I had to accept my property.
Anyway, I feel happy when I learn something and communicate with friends and get angry when someone disturbs me, and takes the time.
Movie – How often do you watch TV Or Netflix? What do you like to watch?
I do not watch TV because I do not have a TV in my house but watch Netflix. I prefer to watch horror movies because it gives me a thrill or a kind of excitement. I do not watch other genres such as teen movies, romance, action, and adventure because they are not interesting. Except for horror movies, I watch animation or fantasy because it releases from this reality.
I am a knowledge-oriented person, which means I have a strong desire to get knowledge relating to academic things because I like learning something. However, while I keep learning theoretical knowledge, I start to get the feeling which I want to get the other stimulation, unreal content. That is another desire which I have. I also like immersing myself in fantasy to stop and rest from learning something. Suppose that you keep sitting for a long time, then I guess you start to have a desire to stand up and walk. It is the same thing.
So, I watch movies relating to horror, animation, or fantasy as a means of escaping from this reality.
PARK – When did you go to a park most recently? Which park did you go to and who did you go with? Tell me all about that last visit to a park in as much detail as you can.
I went to the park with my girlfriend a week ago. The reason why I wanted to visit the park was my mood which I wanted to take a walk and talk with her. The park was close to the girlfriend’s house. So, it was convenient for her and me because If she feels she wants to get home, she can head home.
We enjoyed the time in the park. The location was rich in nature, and the weather was so good for a stroll. She and I talked about our future, such as what kind of a job we want to have, what kind of person we hope to be, etc.
There was another reason that I wanted to wander around with her at the park. I was so mentally worn out. I had to learn a lot of things to enter a company. I learned artificial intelligence and mathematics to take qualifications and make deliverables. Moreover, I had to keep a quite high line of grades because I am receiving the scholarship from my university, guaranteed all of the tuition. So, I had to deal with the assignments from my university to get good grades. I suppose that keeping learning something makes people tired even though I enjoyed the process. I needed to get rest.
She understands the situation I was in. She took care of me a lot. And I was really grateful to her and thought that I wanted to live with her. That is the story of the park.
MOVIE – Who is your favorite character from any movie/TV show? Why is that character your favorite? Describe him/her in detail.
My favorite character is Leon Scott Kennedy. Leon Scott Kennedy is a fictional character in the Resident Evil horror franchise by Capcom. He debuted as one of the two playable characters of the 1998 video game Resident Evil 2, where he is a rookie police officer for the Raccoon City Police Department and later returns as a D.S.O Agent in Resident Evil 4.
So, as you see, Leon is a game character, and he is kind of my ideal model, which I want to be because he is so cool. He has good reflexes and combat skills. He is not so famous for the real world, but for the game industry.
Let me explain when I started to have an interest in Leon. I used to like playing video games and found resident evil when I was ten years old. Once I started to play the game, I really enjoyed the game owing to the sophisticated game system, the distinctive characters, etc. I was so fascinated by the game and characters. So, I like resident evil, and the characters, especially Leon is my favorite character in resident evil.
CHATTING – You indicated that you usually chat on the phone. Tell me who you talk with and what kinds of things you usually talk about. How often and for how long do you talk?
I usually chat with friends about academic things such as psychology, nerve science, politics, statistics and etc. I did call with friends once a week, and we talked about artificial intelligence.
Artificial intelligence is a hot issue today because it yields profits for several parts of industries so dramatically. I work as a data scientist that is relating to processing vast data and making artificial intelligence. So, I know the IT industry. I talked about the significance of developing and spreading artificial intelligence to my friends who did not know about AI so well. I kept talking and passed two hours. What did my friends learn about is which AI has the potentiality that make almost all industries grow the business. My friend gave me feedback on it, and he gave me brain science information. I am not going to talk about the issue because it takes much time if I do.
BOOK – You indicated that you love reading books. Tell me about your favorite book and what the story was all about.
I habitually read books relating to academic things such as psychology, nerve science, information science, etc. But, they are not my favorite. My favorite book is Violet Evergarden.
Violet Evergarden is a novel made by Kana Akatsuki. The story revolves around Auto Memory Dolls: people initially employed by a scientist named Dr. Orland to assist his blind wife Mollie in writing her novels, and later hired by other people who needed their services. In the present time, the term refers to the industry of writing for others. The story follows Violet Evergarden’s journey of reintegrating back into society after the war is over and her search for her life’s purpose now that she is no longer a soldier in order to understand the last words her mentor and guardian, Major Gilbert, had told her: “I love you.”
What I felt about Violet Evergarden after finishing reading was that this novel made me think about what love is. I do not know about love owing to the lack of experience of romantic love. Since I did not understand love, I started to have a desire to understand love.
The second thing I got to know is the misery of war. I know about the war a little because I learned it from TV, the internet, my grandpa, who experienced world war 2. I listened to the war, and it caused negative effects on people, nature, and so on. This novel described the war and the people who were suffered from the memory of the war. There are still civil wars around the world, and people who got involved suffer from the amount of damage.
This novel gave me the motivation to understand what love is and to have an opportunity to think about how the war begins, how peace will be achieved.
Describe a movie you like and the reasons.
I like Real steel. The story was made by Disney, and there are 2 points why I like the movie. It is about robot fighting and a bond between father and children.
Personally, I like robot fightings because it is exciting. Plus, it is memorable for me to watch a bond between father and children because I do not have a positive bond with family. So, it is interesting for me. So, above the reason, robot fighting and a tie between father and children, I like Real steel.
