Kiana on Japanese TV NHK
Time in Japan
- Before coming to the US in 2010, I was a major geek.
- I studied electrical engineering in universities in Japan for six years.
- But I also enjoyed contributing to society.
- That’s why I worked as a guest star on a Japanese TV show called Generation Y which aired 2008 -2010 on Japanese national TV, NHK.
- We talked about social issues such as Japan’s population decrease, finance, politics, sperm banks and makeup.
