Get Ready for the New World.


Hi everyone, it's been a while since I have posted a blog after summer break.

My last semester was a bit overwhelming taking 2 classes besides the capstone and internship classes; I have learnt so much at PLU not only on the academic side, but also the opportunities that have given to me throughout 4 years. As an international student, I have contributed to the diversity on campus from Global Get Down to the fundraising for Japan's tsunami and earth quake relief.

Well, are you afraid of jumping into the new world? - Probably I was. I never came to the United States till I studied at PLU. Everything seemed to be very enjoyable at first but I had to tell myself to be independent and humble to essentially understand the dynamics of American culture. At the end, surely, PLU gave me uncountable opportunities to connect with people from different sides of the world. To learn and understand another culture takes lots of energy and efforts as the other international students do because it's not a simple 1,2,3 process; To achieve your goal and vision, you need to clarify how you manage yourself each day. My journey at PLU would have never been completed without you: faculty members, professors, PLU community, friends and my great parents.

Now I am ready for next step of my journey- keep moving forward to develop my own map of my next career as a PR professional. After I have establish my career I am planning to come back here for my masters degree.

Greatly appreciated Allyson & Akane, who had given me the great bridge to connect the current students and perspective students at PLU.

Happy Holidays!
Tomomi
