Why did you want to study in Japan?
I've been interested in Japanese culture and language for a long time, and I believe it's a really enriching experience to spend time abroad. I had traveled to Japan before and thought that it's a beautiful country with a lot to offer, so I wanted to come and study here.
Are you glad you came to Tokyo?
Yes. I really like Kyoto, because it's not too crowded but still big enough of a city to have a lot of things to do. Not only traditional culture, but there's a lot of other activities to do and restaurants to try out.
What is your dream for the future?
I want to work at an international company focused on political relations. I enjoy meeting people from other countries and I want to do something meaningful, so this would be a perfect combination of the two.
Tell us about your current study or research.
I recently graduated from university with a major in Development Studies. I learned a lot about global politics and the economic situation of different countries. I'm especially interested in the environment and combating climate change. This is why I did my Bachelor's thesis on the topic of recycling.
What is your MOTTO?
My motto is "Try everything at least once." You can never know if you like something or not unless you try it for yourself. I especially like doing this with food, but it works for most other situations too.
Please give a message to students who are considering studying in Japan.
If you are interested in Japan, just take a chance and try it. You will definitely learn a lot and make memories to last a life time.
