I did not choose this career. It chose me. At first, it was just a part-time job and it was a documentation translator position at a small IT startup. I got the job via one sister studying at English Faculty. She referred this job to me. I still remember the clumsy feeling for an English language student with no IT background translating the documentation from Vietnamese to English (mostly) and vice versa.
I’m officially obsessed with Japanese. Before starting learning Japanese, I was more like thinking it would be useful to learn a 2nd foreign language. For my future job, of course. Back then I was really attracted by highly paid jobs from a Japanese company. I imagined someday I would be in a black suit, walk proudly across the corridor, work like a real professional in a Japanese office. So I enrolled an elementary Japanese course with my close friend Nyoko.
