Introduction

Hello! My name is Catherine de Silva. I grew up in the natural state of Arkansas. Arkansas is famous for the Ozarks, diamonds, and rice. Japan is the 8th place total I have lived. I also lived in Hawaii, Thailand, England, California, Spain, and most recently Georgia (U.S.A.).  I finished my undergraduate degree at the University of Hawaii where I played volleyball. After university, I have spent a lot of my time teaching English and playing volleyball overseas. I enjoy learning new things and studying languages and cultures, so let’s learn together! In my free time, I like to bake, try new foods, and travel. I have traveled to 43 countries in total. Additionally, I love being active. I enjoy playing sand volleyball, hiking, downhill mountain biking, tennis, jogging, yoga, lifting weights, swimming, and much more.
