Hi everyone! My name is Ryan Hata. I was born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaiʻi. I’ve also lived in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Tottori. I currently live and work in New York City. Additionally, I loved my time on JET, so I volunteer as an alumni when I can. I currently help Steven Horowitz manage JETwit, am the JET Alumni Association New York Membership and Career Development Chair, and am also on the Board of Advisors for JETAA International.
