Samantha Nakajima

Research Executive

After finishing her BA in Italian and Management at UCL, Samantha started working as a consultant to World Rugby on their Japanese editorial content and official social media channels during the 2015 Rugby World Cup and 2016 Rio Olympics.

In the two years prior to her joining Yuzu Kyodai, she worked as a brewery assistant in East London whilst continuing to work as a technical interpreter and translator.

Samantha also spent a year at the University of Bologna studying anthropology and literature, and another year in Grenoble becoming more fluent in French. Her key strength is leveraging her cultural knowledge to build strong interpersonal relationships and facilitate intercultural communication.
