Hi, my name is Aki. Real name is Akihiro but I go with Aki because many people have trouble with pronouncing my name. My friends say that I am a very traditional Japanese person. Yes, I am very oldfashioned Japanese and I like many old Japanese stuff. In UCSC, we don’t have much Japanese culture compared to other UC so I would like to help people to learn what Japanese culture is. But since I am not good at leading people, I am happy to stay at the vice president so I can take a niche of strategist or something (w). By the way (w) means lol in Japanese.
