Shima Yamanaka

Shima works as Student Welfare Officer at DCU Language Services. She is the first person you will meet when you arrive at DCU and during your studies here. She is always available to help with student questions and to provide advice. Shima is from Japan and has been living in Ireland for more than ten years. She loves meeting people from different countries and learning about their culture (especially the food)! She is also a big fun of Gaelic Football/Hurling (traditional Irish sports). She supports the Dublin team and is keen to introduce these unique sports to you while you are studying English at DCU.
