Participating in Program “MIRAI”

25 March, 2022

On March 25th, I took part in the Program “MIRAI”, Mutual-understanding, Intellectual Relations and Academic Exchange Initiative, which is an international interaction online program between Japanese and European students. In this program I made a presentation titled “Japanese Security Challenges” in English for the first time.  More than 30 students joined the program and we discussed our current security issues and anxieties in Japan and in Europe respectively.  Through the program we have deepened exchanges.

Obtaining an opportunity like this kind of international program is one of the benefits of the MSP program. I made European friends and learned about each situation deeply through this program. Then, I would like to succeed in the MSP program by taking advantage of this valuable experience for my study.
