How did Sakura Science Plan play a role in your study / research in Japan?

Researcher are often looking forward to opportunities. I was lucky to be given the opportunity to do an attachment of joint research program at University of Tsukuba, Japan. Joining this pogram at the University of Tsukuba was a very worthwhile experience for me. This university is one of the most prestigious universities, especially in biotechnology fields. It was an honor to be given this chance to gain a precious experience. Besides, Jappanese reseacher really have a good lab management skills and good lab work techniques. I had learnt a lot of new skills and techniques. Their students and researchers were very skillful and helpful. I hope that what I learnt here I could apply it in my ongoing research. Thanks to University of Tsukuba, sensei and friends, for giving me chance to gain this precious experience.

Please describe your comments freely related to your life in Japan.

Overall, I have learned how to survive in a foreign country, out of reach from my parents and others whom I am familiar with. I have grown as individual in many ways. This study program has allowed me to gain a more sense of independence and curiosity to different places. Based on the beautiful pictures I have seen, there were so many places in Japan that I have always wanted to visit. The people, the culture and the traditions of this country are all unique. Although I cannot speak Jappanese, Japan has brought a sense of curiosity, excitement and happiness, while strengthening my knowledge.

Please describe your message to people who are going to participate in this program.

By being in this program, I was exposed to a variety of learning perspectives. I have come to realize that to gain valuable experience and knowledge, it is important for one to go study abroad and to make a worlwide discovery about developments in other countries . By gaining this valuable experience, this program has allowed my knowledge to expand to a larger extent.
