EVENT DATE Apr 01, 2016
I'm going to study abroad at Akita International University this spring- which has been a dream of mine since I was 6- but I need your help!
Akita University is offering me a semester of study from April 1st-July 30th. There I will study sociology, along with Japanese and Japanese culture. Some classes I hope to take include Tea Ceremony, Flower Arranging, and a sociology class called Minorities in the US.
Going to Japan will benefit my academic and professional career. I can continue my sociology major and nonprofit minor there. I'll be able to utilize my sociological training in a new country, and analyze how Japan regulates their nonprofit sector differently.
I'll be dorming with a Japanese roommate and living on a campus surrounded by forest and close to the sea. I should learn a lot from students from Japan, and from all other parts of the globe.
You might be asking why I'm raising money for this trip. I'm raising money for airfare, cultural experiences, transportation, food, hotels, and recreation/shopping for souvenirs. I'm working hard to save money, but I can't do it without your help. Any amount is appreciated, and I thank you very much for considering!
