Nima of the Month

TTPM (Hyōgo, Japan)

Tuney-Tosheia P. McDaniels is a chemical disaster educator in Japan, educating on the risks of harmful and beneficial impacts of chemistry and chemical substances, including periodically to English learners in Japan.

She has been contributing articles to Discover Nikkei since 2021, ranging from economic uncertainty to the stigmatization of atomic bomb survivors to her own sense of identity—all from the unique perspective of someone of mixed race who grew up in the United States, but now lives in Japan.

She began volunteering for Discover Nikkei in Fall 2021. She helps with reviewing and editing article submissions. We look forward to continuing to work with her in the future!
