Leah Zoller is a second-year CIR in Anamizu and the editor of this blog. She is a long-time fan of Hisaishi–in fact, her first paypal purchase was to buy the Porco Rosso soundtrack.

As a writer and editor at the Ishikawa JET blog, I was proactive in increasing the quality and scope of the content, and my posts on daily living and Japanese study have received the most hits on the blog.
