Published on: January 28, 2010
The Lone Star College-Montgomery Lyceum Speaker Series welcomes Carl Rosa, executive director of the Japan-American Society of Houston, to present a fast-paced, enlightening, and humorous presentation entitled, “Fascinating Facts of Japan,” on Tuesday, February 2, at 12 p.m., on campus in Building B, Room 102.
The presentation is free to the public. Refreshments will be provided, and a meet-and-greet with the presenter will start at 11:30 a.m. in the same location.
In his presentation, Rosa will portray Japan’s continual struggle with overpopulation while offering the audience a glimpse into the daily life of Japanese culture. With special emphasis on the traditional aspects of the country merging with modern society in contemporary Japan, Rosa will delight the audience and provide a unique glimpse of the Japanese culture.
Over the past two years, Rosa has offered more than 150 lectures to a myriad of organizations including the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum, Texas A & M University, The University of New Orleans, Tulane University, the World Affairs Council of Houston, and NASA.
Rosa is the founder and president of the Sushi Club of Houston, an organization with more than 1,000 members dedicated to encouraging an interest in Japanese culture. He is also an instructor for Leisure Learning, Ltd., a chairman for the annual Houston-area Japan Festival, and a part-time writer for the Southern Journal Weekly Japanese Newspaper.
Rosa earned a degree in business administration from the University of New Orleans. After college, Rosa spent six years serving the country in the United States Air Force. He now resides in Houston, but travels to Japan at least twice every year to uncover more amazing facts to include in his presentations.
