I am from the southern part of Kazakhstan. This summer I have graduated from Narxoz University. I have studied International Relations and currently I’m studying at University of Tsukuba and enrolled in the program of International Public Policy.

As a student who studies International Relations, I had to choose my direction and foreign country to learn a foreign language and culture. My dream was Japan. In the third year of my studies at Narxoz University, I have set a goal to enter University of Tsukuba as a master’s student. Another reason for choosing the Tsukuba was my research interest in female political participation in Japan and the fact that Tsukuba is one of the best universities of the country.

I am very grateful for the NipCA project for giving me such an amazing opportunity to deepen my knowledge and gain unforgettable experience. SPJES is a unique opportunity for international students from the Central Asia.
