Hey everyone! I put together this video project after spending a year abroad in Tokyo, Japan, Fall of 2016 and Spring of 2017. As a full-time student, part-time worker, first generation college student coming from a low-income household, I owe my enriching experiences abroad to the scholarships and grants that I received during my stay in Tokyo.
I hope that this video inspires others to travel, study abroad, and experience the unknown! Big thank you to the programs and organizations that made my study abroad experience a reality.
Thank you to the Benjamin A. Gilman Scholarship, The Japanese Association of Student Services Organization, my host university–Meiji Gakuin University, and of course, San Francisco State University for this once in a life time experience. My study abroad experience was the highlight of my undergraduate career.
