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.
After graduation, I plan to enter the sculpture department at Tama Art University. I am interested in the different variations of women's bodies, so I want to work on the subject of the human body and aim to be a sculptor. If I just sculpt the human body, I think it will be the same. For example, if you are also an art major, the calluses on the hands of an oil painter are different from those of a sculptor. I am particularly interested in such small differences in the human body. I chose this school because Professor Satoru Kawagoe of the university is an outstanding person in the field of wood carving. After entering the school, I hope to not only improve my level of professional ability, but also to become someone who feels the details of life and communicates them to the public.
Q. What are your goals and dreams for the future? Please be as specific as possible.
I want to be a sculptor who carves the human body in the future. After graduation, I will make wood sculptures of the human body with the theme of "changes in the shape of the human body according to work, life habits and psychology".
Nowadays, one of the most significant problems in Asia is the difference in the status of men and women in society. Most people think that women with white skin and thin skin are the ones who look good. Not only that, but there is also a lot of pressure and prejudice against women in society. Through my work, I want to convey to the society that it is a sign of love for oneself to keep one's own characteristics and accept all that is in oneself. It is the person who has the confidence to look good. I hope to be able to make this society even a little bit more inclusive through my voice.
Q. Please give some advice to students who will join TCJ in the future and current students based on your experience.
At tcj, classes are divided according to the direction of advancement and Japanese ability at the time of admission, so I think it is necessary to study Japanese and decide the direction of advancement in advance. I couldn't even remember all my kana when I entered the school, let alone be able to express myself completely, but I got my n2 pass certificate in only six months. I would like to thank the teachers who were so careful and responsible for me. If you want to improve your Japanese quickly from the basic level, I suggest that you should do your homework and projects assigned by your teachers, and find part-time jobs where you can communicate with Japanese people directly. If you want to enter an art school, I recommend you to enroll in a juku.
