Inspired by students who have a variety of backgrounds at APU, I came to the thought that I shouldn’t be satisfied with staying the way I am now. This led me to participate in the SEND Program to improve myself.
Through the SEND Program, I acquired the ability to act according to circumstances, as well as self -solving skills. Furthermore, I learnt the importance of acting independently, such as seeking the things I could do, discussing it with teachers at the host school, and carrying them out. I was able to discover my strengths and weaknesses through the many problems I faced and overcame during the program. It was a busy month but I gained many things.
I hope to continue being proactive and taking on various challenges for the remainder of my university life using my strengths I discovered through the SEND Program.
Participating in the SEND Program has helped me to find the fascination of teaching others about Japanese culture; it has given me an interest in Japanese education. As a result, I have decided to apply for ‘Nihongo Partners’. My goal is to increase interest in Japan in the host country by teaching the charm of Japan and making use of my experience in the SEND Program. The experience of the SEND Program has become a treasured memory of mine.
