I aspired to challenge myself, both academically and socially, in an international environment. My master’s thesis pertained to Japan’s role in the Institute of Pacific Relations. Library at the University was one of the few libraries around the world that preserved archives related to the Institute. A wide range of courses offered at University of Hawaii facilitated the background knowledge of my research. I was also fortunate enough to be surrounded by students and professors who had similar research interests which fostered my studies. After studying abroad in Hawaii, I now have a clearer vision of my future: I hope to foster more understanding and friendships between people of different backgrounds around the world.
