US Woman Finds Roots as a JET

Cristina Quinn, a native of Dorchester, Massachusetts, joined the JET Program in 2001. But unlike most of the dozens of other participants who came through the Japanese consulate in Boston, Quinn was in search of her roots. She requested and received a teaching post near the rural town in Fukushima Prefecture where her mother Toshiko came from. During her three years on the program Quinn, who is half Irish, found her vocation was not strictly as an English teacher - she became a DJ with her own radio show, ''Let's English."
