In this episode, Nick speaks with Ayako Smethurst and Drew Scronce about Kizuna Across Cultures. Ayako is the President of Kizuna Across Cultures and Drew is the organization’s Educational Director. Drew also teaches Japanese at Langley High School, just outside of Washington, DC.
Kizuna Across Cultures is an innovative educational organization that uses technology to build relationships between students in Japan and the United States. This is definitely more than a classic pen pal exchange. Listen to the episode to learn how this organization is inspiring youth to embrace diversity.
