Hooked on Asian Studies because: 

I had a great interest in medieval culture when I was younger. In reading about the arms and armor of European knights, I found pictures of samurai equipment, and I've been hooked on Japan ever since. Since then, my interest has expanded into Japanese culture, history, and language as well as eastern religion and philosophy. My language proficiency complements my technological background well because of the strong links between the U.S. and Japan.
