Eckfeldt is of Japanese descent and has many family members who are fluent in Japanese, which has inspired her to go into the JET program or Japanese English Teaching program when she transfers to UH-Mānoa. She is currently taking four classes and is in an elementary Japanese class. Her goal after graduation is to move to Japan as an English teacher to teach young elementary-age students.
