Aoyama Gakuin University Fall 2016

Getting the opportunity to study and live in Tokyo, Japan was an unforgettable experience that was challenging, eye-opening, and incredibly personally rewarding. I got to know people from all around the world, and got to experience both traditional Japanese and international culture. I fell in love with the people, lifestyle, language, and art of Tokyo natives, and I know that no matter where I go from here on, I’ll always carry a piece of Japan with me. My advice: travel as much as you can! You’ll see amazing things, meet amazing people, and find a bit of yourself wherever you go.
