■”I love Japan!” Who is Angela from New Zealand?
When Angela visited Japan during a high-school exchange program, she “fell in love with Japan right away”,
While studying at the university in New Zealand, she went to study at a Japanese university for another year. After graduation she came to Japan again and she got a job at a Japanese company. In New Zealand, there were plenty of videos about crazy TV shows and maid cafés. So Angela decided to start a YouTube channel to show more “real” and local aspects of Japan, and launched her channel “Internationally ME”. Now she became a popular YouTuber with
190 thousand subscribers. (Reference: New Zealand Embassy Facebook)
