My name is Aizhan and I am from Kazakhstan. I graduated from university with a bachelor’s degree in Tourism and worked as a travel manager for several years. Due to a number of reasons I decided to change my occupation and worked in administrative positions in several various companies and later – university, where I had a chance to meet and learn a lot from more experienced and knowledgeable local and international colleagues. My research interest is the repatriation program in Kazakhstan. I would like to find out what kind of challenges repatriates faced in moving back to their country of origin and the legal framework of the program. I hope to learn a lot from the Professors and my classmates during my study. Along with working on research, I would love to learn the Japanese language and to explore Japan.
