Maivi [54期生(2015年秋)] [ラオス]





Greeting from Laos and congratulation to my new IATSS family of the 55th batch, here comes to the second time to write a message about IATSS Forum. Even though, this time we are writing at a different places but I am pretty sure that all of us have the same good memories as a 54th batch through 59 days in Japan.
IATSS Forum to me is not only “Thinking and Learning together” through the seminars or group study as the purpose of the forum mentioned, however, included IATSS staffs, a host family, Japanese volunteers and participants are also “Sharing and Caring each other” because no matter how long the time has been past, we all keep in touch and become sisters and brothers or some people called it as a second family.
To all participants, joining IATSS Forum is not something that you have to prepare yourself in order to a good leader among the team. Nevertheless, you just be yourself with an open hearted and minded so that you will enjoy the single moment of happiness and difficult time during the programs. I believe that “Gasshuku day” is the first opportunity for all of us to create a good teamwork by using your own strength to support one another, at the same time take an opportunity to be a challenger in order to step out of the comfort zone so that you can learn that you can be better than today. Moreover, beside learning from the forum, one of the my best experiences in Japan happened at “Individual Plan Day” you will be able to explore Japanese culture, food, people and to visit unseen places in historical sites, the most excited part is you will experience it all by yourself, so please kindly get ready and plan ahead to use the time worth.
