Chika Yoshida runs a popular YouTube channel teaching conversational English to Japanese speakers. Online, she goes by Bilingirl—a portmanteau of bilingual and girl—and hearing her switch instantly between the two languages, with perfect accents in both, is impressive. She spent most of her childhood in Washington, but now lives in Tokyo, where she's recently been featured on NHK—the Japanese Broadcasting Corporation—in a documentary about young creative entrepreneurs. Chika is in Seattle for part of the summer, and I met up with her earlier this month to shoot some photos for her new blog, which will be a hub for all of her various social media activities. We headed down to the Seattle waterfront, and along with portraits and profile pics, I got some shots of her—always elegant and photogenic—capturing footage for an upcoming YouTube episode.
