My time in APU was one of the happiest and most meaningful in my life. I have been blessed with many good friends and fortunate enough to acquire so many life experiences while living in Japan. The reason for this was because I was able to keep an open mind and was willing to take risk and got out of my comfort zone. I challenged many things and did things I have never done before, thus I accumulated many experiences and knowledge. There are things to regret of course, but I choose not to think of them and just move forward. So to all current APU students, time does not wait, please seize the moment and live your life to the fullest. Do not be afraid to challenge new things.
