"I worked in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Japan for more than 10 years. I worked as diplomat in Japanese Embassy in Nicaragua and in Ecuador. Since 2014 I worked independently as interpreter, translator, international project coordinator and lecturer at a University in Japan. From the working experience as a lecturer, I found my passion to help students to find their passion toward work. This self-discovery drove me to want to study deeply this topic to be able to help the more effective way. After the exhaustive research on my suitable course, I came to the conclusion that Occupational Psychology was the best option for me.
I decided to apply to MSc Occupational Psychology at Goldsmiths because first I really wanted to live in London from a long time ago and second I liked how I was attended by the people of the college from academic staffs to administration staffs. They were very approachable and kind. The college’s aims to conduct “cutting-edged research” attracted me as well.
I really like the College atmosphere! It is not in the centre of the city. You don’t have to struggle against the crowd to come to the college. But you still feel that you are in London! You can immerse yourself in your study in a relatively quiet atmosphere, at the same time enjoying the vibes of this fantastic metropolitan city! All the staffs are incredibly very supportive. The students are also very kind. We help us each other. I love the collaborative relationship with my classmates. Moreover, you can always find events inside the college. You never would get bored here!!
I would like to work as a lecturer specialized in career development, especially teaching how to find your true passion in Japan as well as in Europe after my graduation. I also would like to work as cross-cultural project consultant especially between Japan and Europe!"
