Hi OkiJETs! My name is Alaura, and I will be serving as chair for this upcoming year. I am a 3rd year, and primarily work in the Urasoe area. In my free time, I enjoy trying new restaurants, sightseeing, hiking, onsen, and annoying my friends with bad jokes. If you ever have any comments, questions, or concerns please feel free to reach out!
