Hello everyone! My name is Duyen Dinh. I am a third year student in California State University Fullerton. My major is International Business with a concentration and minor in Japanese.
I have never thought of going to study abroad in Japan. However, as I grow up and have more experiences with everything, I have felt in love with Japan and its cultures. Therefore, I decided to study abroad in Okayama University in Japan as an exchange student in the upcoming Spring 2017 semester.
I am the first generation in my family going to college in the US. With the language barriers and all the difficulties of starting a new chapter in life as an immigrant, I finally started to make one of my education's dreams come true by studying abroad in Japan. I hope that I could make a fund raising to pay for my tuition and living expenses during the upcoming semester there. This opportunity would help me to boost my self-confidence, achieve my goals and build up my resume upon future career. After this experience, I hope to inspire other students and young adults to do big and different things that they might not ever think of!
Thank you very much for your consideration and assistance! I appreciate all the help :)
