短期留学生の自己紹介 第2弾


Xue Jennifer

I am from New York. I turn 17 this year, and in the fall I will be a high school senior. I have not had many memorable experiences, and so in Japan. I want to make the most of my 2 weeks here. I am especially attracted to Japan’s remarkable politeness and respect for one another and even the environment. Back in Amerika, I would not have the same experience in terms of discipline and courtesy. I hope to leave Sapporo and share all the great things I’ve experienced here.
