Blake Trumble, a modern language studies major, took the second place prize at the March 23 Japanese Language Speech Contest in Houston. Trumble's speech on artificial intelligence also garnered him a $300 scholarship.
Originally from Granbury, Texas, Trumble fell in love with Japan when he was selected for an exchange program called Kizuna (bond) following the 2011 earthquake and tsunami. He has visited two other times since then and wants to live there after he graduates. At UTSA he is studying Japanese and minoring in East Asian studies to prepare for a career in the translation and interpreting industry.
