Mr. Derrick aka “D’Mojah” Wilson has a Bachelor of Science Degree in Social Psychology from James Madison University. Before taking the incredible opportunity to teach English in Japan, Mr. D’Mojah worked as a Technical Information Analyst with American Psychological Association (APA).
Mr. D’Mojah was a student of Master June for many years, and in 2014 he began collaborating with Integrity of Self MovementArts® (ISMA) to provide workshops and masterclasses at Wakayama Top Health and Wellness Center, Wakayama City Elementary Schools, and other venues in Japan.
