Country Representative (NZ)
I'm Roseanna Finkle-Vern (please call me Rosa!), and I am the Country Representative for JETAA New Zealand. I was a CIR in Ichinomiya City, Aichi Prefecture for three years from 2014 to 2017 and had the time of my life! It gave me some incredibly valuable life experience, and many wonderful friendships, and I wouldn't be the person I am today without the experience.
On returning to New Zealand, I started working at the Embassy of Japan in Wellington, and also joined the Wellington Chapter of JETAA. I'm really grateful that I can continue using the skills I learned as a JET in my current workplace. As Country Representative of New Zealand, I keep contact with the three chapters and one sub-chapter of JETAA in NZ, and we also have a good relationship with chapters in Australia (believe it or not!), with meets for Oceania JETAA members happening each year.
Feel free to be in touch anytime you wish, I'd love to hear from you!
