Q & A with Mr Newton Dias

★ Experience in Japan

I've had great experiences with people and it keeps getting better, with lots more fun coming around. At first, it was quite difficult to manage life since I didn't speak the language nor had help. So getting around and taking care of documentation was a hassle. But the people are so kind and patient when attending me. It motivated me to learn the language, during which i became more intrigued with the Japanese and wanted to understand their culture.
★ AFAM Experience I've volunteered in the organising committee and helped with ideas and opinions on organising events for AFAM.

What about your AFAM experience ?:

AFAM was a place where I felt like I’m home. I met beautiful African people from different countries that we respect each other as a member of one big family.
