I want to contribute to restoration of Fukushima, my hometown.
I want to be a civil servant. I am studying the field of public economics, which I am interested in, mainly focusing on micro-economics and macro-economics, specialized subjects necessary for the civil servant examination. Since the extracurricular civil servant course I am taking is offered on campus, I am happy that there is no time lost in commuting and I can concentrate on studying. It is also advantageous that I can take the course so inexpensively. In addition, I acquired the qualification for bookkeeping and as an MS Office Specialist to broaden my skills.
