18-year Old Prodigy Arrives on JET Program

At age 18, Raka Banerjee is not only already a graduate of the University of Washington, she is also believed to be the youngest ever participant on the JET program, according to The Seattle Post-Intelligencer. After graduating last month with a double major (international studies and comparative history of ideas), the gifted daughter of Indian emigres arrived Saturday to become an assistant English teacher at junior high schools in Kasai City, near Kobe. She was one of 60 JETs arriving from the Washington area. While in Japan, Banerjee plans to apply to law schools back in the US.
