Favorite quotation: “Even in the far future, never forget the you of right now. You’re just taking a break, don’t give up.” – BTS-Tomorrow

Personal Statement:

In my life I would like to continue to travel and broaden my horizons. I will attend a university and I would love to study abroad. This program is preparing me to step out of my comfort zone and take advantage of any opportunity that comes my way. Japan entered my life through pop culture but after getting involved, it’s grabbed my interests in other places, fashion especially. I believe it’s important to learn new languages and not rely on everyone knowing English. I’m currently studying Spanish and Japanese. I know this program will continue to immerse me into the Japanese culture.
