Kate Kamoshita

Founder at Learning compass

I studied abroad at 17 in Italy for a year with AFS and this was the start of many international education adventures. I graduated cum laude from American University in Washington D,C with a degree in Visual Media.  AT AU, I worked in the study abroad department as a student advisor and went abroad to Prague and Cape Town. Since 2006, I have been living and working in Japan learning about youth, education, Japanese and study abroad.  I want to now use my expertise to help you navigate and find your path.
