My name is Janice and I am the external relations assistant this summer. As an alumna of last year’s summer program, I know that World Campus International and its community partners have exciting opportunities and schedules in store for all the participants.
I am from Boston, Massachusetts and study business administration at Boston University. Upon graduation, I hope to teach English in Japan with the JET Program or pursue a degree in non-profit management.
My infatuation with Japan started in high school when I studied Japanese and participated in a cultural exchange in Kyoto. I simply fell in love with the country’s unique culture and friendly people. The only treatment for the travel bug I caught in Kyoto seemed to be more travel — and that’s exactly what I have been doing! First, I went to Japan with World Campus International last summer and more recently, I have been interning and studying abroad in New Zealand since January. Though it’s been an awesome adventure, I am ready to come back to Japan — my home away from home!
I am so happy to have this chance to travel around Japan with WCI again and I cannot wait to meet new faces and to reunite with old ones! A great learning experience awaits us, whether starring the other World Campus – Japan members, their individual cultures or even yourself! Be prepared for a thrilling summer filled with delicious food, hospitable host families, friends from all around the world, and memories that will last for a lifetime 🙂
