Arrival in Japan
Course of study
I studied International Environment and Resources Policy at Tohoku University for my masters degree and I am currently studying for my PhD degree at the Tohoku University Graduate School of Law.
Experience in Japan
Japan has been an amazing experience for me. I got to see and experience a lot when I joined the Miyagi Ambassadors. The ambassadors’ program allowed me to experience the rich culture and beauty of the Tohoku region. Doing research and studying in a research lab was a totally new experience. In Ghana, I was used to studying in a library or on my own so I was pleasantly surprised by the new style. It was nice to make some close friends in the lab.
I like reading, watching movies, chatting and strategizing
