“I’ am currently studying international relationships with emphasis on the far east at the University of North Texas, earlier this year I decided to combine my academic pursuits with hands on experience by working as an intern for the Kozmoz International organization.

From July 13th to August 14th I interned in Kyoto with Kozmoz to learn first hand how to be an effective English instructor at Family English Schools. Everyday I had the opportunity to interact and make friends with people from a culture different than my own. I felt a great since of self-worth knowing that the English Schools provide the necessary funding to support people in need of food, legal and medical assistance in the Kansai region.

My experience was nothing short of amazing, living and working in another country has provided me with courage and confidence to decide if working in Japan is right for me. If anyone reading this has ever considered working or volunteering in Japan but has lacked the confidence to believe they could be successful, I recommend this program to you. You will walk away with a wonderful and unique experience and have a better understanding of yourself and where you want to be in the future.”
