Sustainability Co-creation Programme (SCOPE)
Japan has always been a country that captivated me. Being so far away from my own country, my curiosity for Japan grew with time, so I started researching more about the country and I ended up deciding that I wanted to study there, since it was a country so different from mine and with so many things to show me. There are so many values that I admire in Japan as a society such as the respect for others, politeness, commitment and calmness they have, those definitely made Japan an ideal country for me to study in.
I found Hosei University while I was searching for English Undergraduate programs in Japan. Hosei stood out for me the most because they offered a very distinctive program compared to other universities. I felt that Hosei had a lot of vision for the program and was willing to let students contribute and become co-creators of the program. A lot of the values of the university resonated with me, which is, in my opinion, one of the most important things in any institution.
Being in such a multi-cultural environment is definitely one of the things I enjoy the most. During my time in Hosei University I have met many people from various countries, I got the opportunity to share classes with exchange students, as well with Japanese language-track students. Those opportunities allowed me to make friends not only with people in my own program but also people from other programs as well.
