When I studied abroad in Japan at 15 I was introduced to a variety of cultures and people. I learned how important it was to study languages and cultures other than your own to gain new perspectives and intercultural communication skills. I aim to have high proficiency in Japanese because I feel like it will help me understand the culture on a deeper level. While I don't know what specific job I want in the future, I do know that the study of culture will take me to many places and give me opportunities to learn throughout my whole life. I am excited to see where this study takes me!
