You must be thinking… WAIT FOR FREE?
YES FOR FREE!
Long story short, I was selected along with 22 other students out of 90+ applicants to go to Japan for free! This trip was sponsored by JICE (Japan International Corporation Center). This trip was mainly to strengthen ties between Japan and Hawaii. Hawaii Pacific University (my university during that time in November 2015) was selected to be one of the universities to join and experience Japan via their programs.
I HAD THE MOST AMAZING TIME! (I mean, free food too?! Of course I had an amazing time lol)
I’d love to share some photos with you!
Where we went:
– Nagano (HOMESTAY)
These pictures are just a tiny glimpse of what we experienced! I really want to thank Ministry of Foreign Affairs and JICE for giving us this wonderful opportunity to experience Japan like this FOR FREE! I made wonderful connections with people and part of my heart is still there. So I’ll be going back soon~
