About Me

Hi, everyone! I'm Sho, who loves talking, traveling, watching baseball, anything!!(≧▽≦)
Since last summer (2014), I am going to Boston University as a exchange student from WASEDA university (until May 10th 2015). Why do I join this program? There are several reasons; first I wanna talk with many different people! Thanks to many kind people, I really enjoy talking with a lot of friends in Boston. Second, I would like to study Political Science, which I major, especially I am studying politics in modern Japan. As you know, Boston has a lot of famous university including Harvard university. This environment is perfect to study the frontier researches. Third, I love traveling, so I really wanted to go out from Japan before coming to Boston. In winter break, I went to Grand Canyon, Antelope Canyon, Las Vegas, and Atlanta. In Spring break, I went to NYC, Philly, Washington DC. These travels was sooo amazing! Now I am thinking to go to Europe and South East Asia. Forth, the different environment makes me recognize a lot of things such as my week points, ideas which I have never come up with. This experience is very precious! These four points are a reason why I am in Boston.
Also, the above reasons might explain myself. Still I have the same mind and am finding new ways after my exchange program.
Feel free to ask anything about me or let me know if you wanna hang out together in Japan!(after July 2015, I will be in Tokyo)
