Είς μίαν, αγίαν, καθολικήν καί αποστολικήν Έκκλησίαν. Προσδοκῶ ἀνάστασιν νεκρῶν. Καὶ ζωὴν τοῦ μέλλοντος αἰῶνος. Ἀμήν.

Hello, I'm Aphaia aka KIZU Naoko. (This is Japanese name, family name comes first).  On IRC channels and blogosphere, I'm known as "britty".

My work areas on the community include translation in particular. See also my Wikimedia CV for more details.

Also I served Board elections as committee member.

In the real life, I am a freelance aesthetician engaging in German thought research. I was degreed with M.A. from Osaka University in 1994. After four years attendance at its doctoral course, I taught the Western culture as lecturer in contract in a certain college from 1997 till 1999.

If you are interested in helping the Wikimedia project, please contact me. Happy Wikimedia life!
