2nd LEAD AMBASSADOR
Tokyo, Japan

Major: International Business with a minor in International Studies

Class Standing: Sophomore

WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO BECOME A DAVIS COLLEGE OF BUSINESS STUDENT AMBASSADOR?

I was looking for leadership roles on campus that would help me with future jobs. I saw the ambassadors working an event and it sparked my interest, they were very energetic and confident. I started losing confidence when I came to the US because the environment is totally different from back home. In essence, I applied to serve as a Davis College of Business Student Ambassador in order to gain confidence and be a positive representative for my school.

WHAT INSPIRES YOU OR MOTIVATES YOU TO KEEP GOING?

Because I came to JU as an international student, everything was brand new for me. I still remember all of the excitement from when I first came, I love meeting new people and making friends. Broadening my perspective by talking and sharing stories with people of different backgrounds is what keeps me going.
