Welcome to the Hobby Chan Family
Welcome to the Hobby Chan Family

Before continuing posting on Hobby Chan’s blog, I thought I should introduce myself! My name is Maysam Al-Ani. I am a student at Northwestern University in Qatar. The reason why I decided on joining the Hobby Chan family is because of their clear potential of becoming both a hotspot and a center of discussion for Japanese modern culture in Qatar. 

Before continuing posting on Hobby Chan’s blog, I thought I should introduce myself! My name is Maysam Al-Ani. I am a student at Northwestern University in Qatar.

The reason why I decided on joining the Hobby Chan family is because of their clear potential of becoming both a hotspot and a center of discussion for Japanese modern culture in Qatar. As a fan of Japanese pop culture myself, I see that in Qatar there are many people who are interested in too. But, unfortunately, there are rarely any opportunities for embracing this interest. In most cases, its actually something people are ashamed of and would rather not share. However, this does not have to be the case! Instead, Japanese – or any culture for that matter – should be celebrated, especially if it focuses on creativity.

Japanese modern culture, whatever that is to you: the anime, technology, video games, films, music, food, or fashion is one that is just blooming in the freedom of creativity, individualism, originality, and inspiration. With Hobby Chan, I hope to help start this discussion on all things Japanese and help people connect to like-minded others, and if not, at least start a dialogue between people. Then, in the future, get the Hobby Chan community together to create it into something more than just a shop, but into something that we can call ours and represent it positively through the influences of our artists, writers, and creative minds. That is exactly what Japanese modern culture is giving us an opportunity to do, to not only dive into and admire art but also to create art ourselves, thus Hobby Chan.

In any case, please welcome me! If you are new to Hobby Chan too, welcome!
