Miyu was and hopefully still is incredibly passionate about teaching English. Miyu believed that the sole purpose of her existence was to teach English to other Japanese. At the age of 17, Miyu traveled abroad and lived in an English speaking country for 6 months during which she immersed herself in the language completely and utterly.
