Q. What kind of career path did you take after graduating from TCJ? Also, please tell us the reason why you chose your career path.
I am enrolled in the Faculty of Intercultural Studies at Hosei University. In the future, I would like to work in the field of spreading art and culture to the general public through media. Therefore, I think I have to consider the interaction and interrelationship between the media, arts＆culture and society, as well as the future development of these three fields. In particular, I believe that it is essential to clarify the related issues of the position, media and theme of the information publisher. In the future, I would like to major in a representational culture course that includes the three fields of media, art and society, and continue to work towards my goal.
Q. What are your goals and dreams for the future? Please be as specific as possible.
In the future I would like to work in media field or arts management. I would like to share the aesthetics of art and the awareness of discovering beauty with many people. In order to do so, I need to acquire knowledge about media, art and sociology. In addition, globalization and the introduction of information technology have fundamentally changed the mechanisms of cultural production, so it will be necessary to consider various fields from a multifaceted perspective.
Q. Please give some advice to students who will join TCJ in the future and current students based on your experience.
When I came to Japan, I have studied up to the JLPT N2 level, but I couldn't actually pass N2. I passed N2 and N1 in the first six months after I enrolled in TCJ. Then I joined the university course class and prepared for the Examination for Japanese University for International Students (EJU) and the internal examinations of each university. My homeroom teacher helped me to checked the application form and practiced a mock interview many times, for which I am very grateful. In addition to the exam-related classes, there are also classes related to how to write essays, how to prepare for presentations, which will be essential when you enter a university. Now that I am going to college, I feel the effects of what I studied in TCJ are very positive and useful. I think it is important to believe in TCJ' teachers and follow your original intentions.
