Since I became an international graduate student at the Department of Urban and Regional Planning at the University of Hawaii at Manoa in 2011, I have actively worked for international student communities at the East-West Center and the international student services office at UH-Manoa assisting international students’ studies and campus life. After I obtained my Master’s degree in Urban and Regional Planning in 2013, my passion for assisting other international students in the US has driven me to be continued by being a mentor for Japanese Junior high school students during the Rainbow for Japan Kids project in Hawaii in 2014 and 2015, as well as, becoming a mentor for Japanese and American high school students at the Change Academy’s Summer program in Hawaii in 2016. I currently work for Hawaii Tokai International College as an international programs coordinator.
