Teacher's Room


Cherry Tan / AA090

Movies, reading, music, writing, TV, and Japanese food

This is me.


My name is Cherry, and I am 19 years old and Chinese-Canadian. I am currently a student at the University of Toronto doing a Psychology Specialist and an English Minor. I plan on pursuing teacher's college with a concentration in English after graduation.

I am a friendly and passionate person with many hobbies. I watch a lot of movies and TV shows, especially action, drama, or romance. Some of my favorite TV shows include: 24, Friday Night Lights, Gossip Girl, and One Tree Hill. I've also seen a lot of anime (with a soft spot for Hayao Miyazaki's films) and I've been to anime conventions, though I have yet to do cosplay!

I'm also an avid music listener as well. I listen to English, Korean, and Japanese music, and my favorite artists are: Dong Bang Shin Ki (Tohoshinki), Hikaru Utada, Lady Gaga, Namie Amuro, and Super Junior. Maybe we'll share some music in common, and if not, you can always introduce me to new artists! I've also been gaming for a long time now on the Playstation, and I have a huge love for the Final Fantasy franchise. I also like to read and write fanfiction and original stories.

As someone who is into Japanese food, music, and TV shows, I am excited about this program. Japan is one of the places that I've dreamed of visiting ever since I was little. I find everything about Japanese culture fascinating, and hopefully, I can share with you the best of my culture as well.

I look forward to meeting you.
