Hi everyone! I am a third year student pursuing a double major in Economics and Chinese. Apart from my studies, I run cross country with the UC Davis XC&T Club and I am a member of the UC Davis Economics Department’s Women in Economics Society (WIES). My goal is to encourage you in your studies, direct you to helpful resources, and to help you make the most of your time here at UC Davis! Whether you are curious about how to succeed in some of the more difficult professors’ classes, internships pertaining to your major, or whatever it may be, I am here to be a resource for you and will help you to the best of my ability! 

Japanese Peer Advisors

ryanRyan Stewart

Hello everyone! A little about myself: I am a fourth-year transfer student majoring in Japanese and minoring in East Asian Studies. My main interests within the field are the cinema and particularly the literature of Japan. Some of my favorite authors include Genichiro Takahashi, Kou Machida, Kobo Abe, and Ryu Murakami. Anything dark and strange is right up my alley. Some of my hobbies include making and listening to music, photography, combat sports, and amateur entomology. As your peer advisor, I am happy to answer any and all questions you may have about the Japanese major, so please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Hi everyone! I am a fourth year Japanese and International Relations double major with a minor in East Asian Studies. I am part of JLCC (Japanese Language and Culture Connection) as well as a former intern of JCHIP (Japan Children’s Home Internship Program). I also just returned from my full year study abroad at Waseda University in Tokyo! Some of my hobbies include reading Japanese novels, listening to Japanese music (from J-Rock, Johnnys, to Utaite), and drawing manga!
