      President's Greetings  

Hello everyone. I am Mei.  I was a student at SCC as an international student about only two months in 2015 to learn English. Of course, I could not master English at that time. However, I learned a lot of things not only English and NZ cultures but also more important things from teachers, friends and host family.

At first, my aim was to study English and I hoped that I will major English language at university. However some experience changed my life. During my exchange in NZ, I met people from the Middle East. Also, at the same time, I watched the breaking news which was about the difficult situations of the Middle East and I was really shocked at TV videos. I did not know and had no interest in what is happening in the world before.


However since then, I came to have strong interests in international affairs and the Middle East. I felt that I have to look around more and want to learn things which is related  to   international affairs and the Middle East. Now I am a university student in Japan and I am majoring in international politics, cooperation and area studies especially the Middle East. I have really amazing university life in Japan because I can study what interests me. I will be a second year student this April and I am going to take all the lectures I am interested in. These days, I am thinking about my future and I hope it will be better for me. I could not stop thinking about my life because it ia interesting!

So far nothing much has changed in my life and I think it was good for me. If I had not have exchange programme, I would have never such experience. Probably I am not here. I think sometimes small things can change widely one's life like me. So I hope everybody finds the things which you are interested in and never stop thinking about that. Having strong interests will lead you to a great way in your life. Your life will be better if you never forget your positive attitude towards your interests.

Thank you

Mei Udagawa
