Inspired by her study abroad expe­ri­ence last year at Obirin Uni­ver­sity in Japan, Johanna Gunawan sought an oppor­tu­nity to return to the East Asian nation this past summer.

Gunawan, SSH ’17, found the oppor­tu­nity in the Japan-​​America Stu­dent Con­fer­ence, a student-​​led aca­d­emic and cul­tural exchange pro­gram that brings together stu­dents to gain a better under­standing of each other’s nations.

A Japanese pol­i­tics course led to my appli­ca­tion to JASC,” Gunawan said. “It taught me a lot about the Japanese system of gov­er­nance, including gender pol­i­tics, the size of the gov­ern­ment, the eco­nomics of bureau­cracy, and more. The con­tent of that course piqued my curiosity and made me want to con­tinue learning more.”
