APU President KORENAGA Shun praised the efforts of the ANDO Momofuku Award recipients before handing each student their certificate.

Recipient of the ANDO Momofuku Award, REINBOLD Marvin Hendrik (College of International Management 3rd year, Germany), represented his fellow award recipients and shared his aspirations for the future: “I was shy, had only a few friends and was not confident in myself. However, Mr. ANDO Momofuku said that you are never too old to pursue your dream. Thus, I have started to pursue my dream of becoming a concept artist. I am finally happy with who I am and I am proud to say, that I want to create intellectual property for others, so that they get inspired to pursue their dreams and never ever give up, no matter what struggle they might face. I know it is hard to change your life, but if you keep on working hard and do not give up, you can be whoever you want to be.
Be proud of yourself, but do not forget the ones around you. Without my friends and family I would have never been where I am today. I am grateful to each and every one of them from the bottom of my heart and cannot thank them enough.”
