Greetings JASSW viewers,
My name is Mitsuyo. I was recently offered this opportunity to work as an intern
at the JASSW.
This is an official OPT opportunity in the US related to my coursework in my major, which is Business.
I decided to join the JASSW since I wanted to know how it built and developed the relationship between Seattle and Japan.
Currently, the JASSW hosts and promotes activities as a bridge for Business, Educational and Cultural exchanges between the State of Washington and Japan.
It give me great pleasure to be involved in these activities with JASSW.
Hello, I'm Artina Daniels who studies at the TAF Academy.
As an intern, I expect to be pushed to my full language learning abilities. I also expect my knowledge of Japanese and American culture to be expanded and to better understand how these cultures cooperate together.
I am interested in how Japanese and American culture is combined in your society. I want to better understand both cultures and how they have been presented to the public.
I would like to bring my knowledge of not only Washington state but of other state's and county's cultures to the Japan Society.
Hello,I'm Torri Judith Brown who studies at the TAF Academy.
I expect to get an insight on a Japanese run company and possibly learn more about their culture and language. I hope fully will be able to practice the language during the internship.
I am interested in the cultural events and programs that they have to offer. I would love to participate in one of their events. I am also interested in the visit to schools that JASSW has. I think it is interesting that they share Japanese culture with students.
A group where high school students can represent Washington to visit other high schools in Japan. I think that is a great idea because we can learn from each other the different ways. Classes are taught and get an idea of what the education system is like Japan.
Hello. Nice to meet you. I'm Mina Shinagawa. I'm from Kanagawa prefecture, in Japan. Kanagawa prefecture is famous for Yokohama city.
I've been JASSW as an intern from February 20th 2014, and I'll stay here for 4 weeks. I decided to apply for an internship at JASSW, because I wanted to experience working abroad, and I'm very interested in cultural exchange.
I just finished my sophomore in Aoyama Gakuin University, and I will be a junior next semester. I major in English American Literature there, and I often enjoy learning foreign culture by reading books or watching musicals.
I will do my best to contribute JASSW during my stay in Seattle.

I'm Sanae Yorozu, a senior student of Hokkaido University.
I’ve started working at JASSW as an internship position from October 24th 2013.
The aim I came to Seattle is to join JS and JLCV volunteer.
In my university, I'm on a tutor work for international exchange students. I teach students Japanese language, custom and culture so on. Helping them is my pleasure to find there are many people abroad interested in and love Japan. This experience made me think of “how is Japan they love in their country?”
JS and JLCV program is perfect to know how is Japan abroad, and through it I can be involved with those who are interested in Japan.
And luckily, I got a wonderful opportunity working at JASSW office too. Much appreciated to Ms. Olson offered me to work here.
I'll be here only about two months, but do my best and make a contribution to those who love Japan in Seattle and JASSW.
Nice to meet you.
