Visiting Framingham State University as a Guest Speaker【学生レポート】

I met Prof. Glickman, a professor at Framingham State University, last year when he came to Showa Boston as a guest speaker and we have been keeping in touch for a semester. Today, I was invited to his Marketing class, and I gave a presentation about the Japanese higher education system and the workplace of the future.


I have had opportunities to meet guest speakers at Showa Boston and language school since I came to Boston. This was the first time that I was invited to speak in front of a group of people. I was nervous about speaking about Japan as a Japanese representative in the class. However, my tension disappeared quickly. All the students asked me questions and I was really happy when I knew that they were interested in Japanese culture. Also, they listened to me even though I have terrible pronunciation. That was really helpful so I could enjoy talking to them.


I think being invited as a guest speaker and talking in a class or in a school is really a rare and precious experience. Again, I appreciate Prof. Glickman for giving me this time, and also Christina, a 2015 SSIP participant from FSU, who gave me a lot of advice to prepare for this time. I want to appreciate all the chances I had, all the people I met and I will do my best in every moment.


Thank you.
