Sandra is TELL's Kansai Coordinator.
Sandra was born and raised in Vienna, Austria, but – brought up by a Japanese mother and having spent summers in the mountains of Okayama – Japan has always been part of her life. She graduated in Social Work, following her passion to work with and for people, and started to gain professional experience working with the elderly and people with mental health issues. She also worked as a probation officer and at the airport with detained asylum seekers. In 2005 Sandra moved to Tokyo, where she worked for the Suginami Education Board with Japanese returnees and school dropouts, and now she lives in Kyoto, where she enjoys eating wagashi, studying traditional Chinese medicine and practicing Tai Chi.Send an email to Sandra Strnadt
