Who is Yaomin?
Yaomin has been at NIS since Middle School. She is well-known for her two passions – Japanese language & culture and arts & media. Yaomin took Japanese language, art and
dance classes all throughout Middle and High School. Growing up at an international school, Yaomin is very interested in how people with multicultural backgrounds manipulate media
and arts to communicate their experiences. Yaomin has produced countless pieces of artwork drawn with Japanese animation as the influence. She also performed at all school
wide events, talent shows, and at Central Festival. When she wasn’t busy with school work, rehearsals, and art, Yaomin volunteered her time translating documents and tutoring the
younger Japanese students at NIS.
