Besides academic studies, I have been a part of the school’s musical and drama societies as an actor and a production assistant in ‘Moulin Rouge’ and ‘Morir O No’. From this experience, I learned not only how to harmonise and communicate with a variety of people, but also to express humanity in a form of art. To me, theatre performance is more than just an entertainment, but a microcosm of society which gives significant messages to the audience. Additionally, as a human being, I always seek to improve myself and adapt in new environments. Learning, especially being able to communicate in foreign languages, has been my top priority since I was little. I have been interested in learning Japanese, French, German as well as English. Since my time in the UK, my English skills have improved consistently, especially in writing and speaking, as I needed these skills for social interactions. I hope to continue my study in the UK, to perfect my English skills which would allow me to communicate effortlessly with people in the world.
After getting the bachelor’s degree in sociology, I plan to continue my study at graduate school. I am open to new opportunities in life, but right now I hope to find an internship in broadcasting during this time in the future. It is my passion and interest to eventually get involved in creative media industry, and produce public media programs like TV shows, films and podcasts. In my opinion, media production should be based on an understanding of both people and communities, to help build a better society. I strongly believe that my experience at ‘FIE Student Global Leadership Conference’ will help me to develop my own specialties as well as social interaction skills, which are essential to reach this goal.
