Personal history

 After graduating from the University of the Ryukyus, I'd worked in Ryukyu University for 5 years. Then I also worked in a nursing homes, our university and a nursing school (teaching only clinical training), and a visiting nursing stations.


 "Look out into the wide world. And think by yourself." It's a line from one of my favorite  movie. I think this is the origin of my curiosity. Although I don't have any work experience abroad, I became interested in international health through my encounters with foreign patients as a nurse and learning about people's lives and medical care overseas. I want to enjoy everything and do my best.
