Melissa Yang

DHi CLASS Scholar, Hamilton College

Melissa Yang is a sophomore at Hamilton College. She is a DHi undergraduate scholar. She is currently working with Professor Kyoko Omori and Sarah Bither on the Comparative Japanese Film Archive, which was started by Professor Omori and Alex Benkhart. Her interest in films and filming techniques was cultivated during her time at Brooklyn Technical High School. At the same time, she picked up an array of skills in manipulative software, which she hopes to add to in the future. Melissa also has an interest in foreign languages. She hopes to study abroad in China and Japan during her junior year to further her language skills. She would like to work on future projects that would put her acquired language skills to use.
