My name is Tyler and I am from Canada. I was finally able to participate in a study abroad program as this program had the lowest initial cost. I learned later that it is a very rare case where I am able to pay the tuition on monthly basis. It was first time for me to live in abroad, but this has been the most amazing experience I have ever had. I decided to continue my study in Japan for 1 more year, and later to pursue higher education here.

My name is Jessica and I am from France. I decided to study abroad as I wanted to experience more and literally to get outside of my comfort zone. It has been 2 years since I came to Japan, and it has been a year since I have been working in a Japanese fashion brand that is trying to expand its business to Europe. I will be assigned in Paris office in 2019, and this has been my dream job.

My name is Olivia and I am from the United States. I came to Japan after breaking up with my highschool sweetheart. I just wanted to get away from my hometown, and this was the easiest and cheapest option that I could find. While I was studying in the language school, I was also teaching business English for Japanese corporations. My life in Japan has been sustainable as I am making money while I am studying in Japan. Finally, I just got engaged with my French boyfriend who is working in Japan, and this has been the best choice I made in my life!

My name is Allan and I am from England. I am a huge anime fan and it has always been my dream to live in Japan. I fell in love with Akihabara when I visited Japan in 2015 and always dreamed of coming back. I probably would not have been able to come to Japan without this program as I did not have much saving. My parents were willing to support me if the payment was in monthly installment and I was finally able to come to Japan. I am taking intensive Japanese course to be able to communicate better, and my goal is to settle in Japan so that I can live with my girlfriend whom I met in Akihabara.
