YUNJIN JIAO

YUNJIN JIAO

I am a student major in science. I really love talking to people and writing my own stories. I am convinced that the best way to know more is to share and get feedback. I love traveling and trying new experiences, which can make me different from the past. 

 LIU YIQING

LIU YIQING

​I’m a graduate student majoring in advertising. I’m a calendar designer, a photographer, and a copywriter as well.

I’m a fan of art museums and creative designs, falling in love with everything that could convey people’s feelings and tell charming stories since I attended professional art design and photography courses in my college. The calendar is my unique way to communicate with my friends living in many countries around the world, through different textures or tastes or even sound. (check www.aioncalendar.com to see more about the art work)

JUNGWON CHOI

JUNGWON CHOI

I would like to define myself with two words: diligent and punctual. I put my best effort and try to be diligent in everything I do. I try to leave no regrets behind. Punctuality is also a trait I pride myself in; this doesn't just apply to the academic area, but all aspects of life.

SOJI YUN

SOJI YUN

At first, I'm shy, but when I get close to others, I'm the most active friend.  I like to tell my story, and I'm happy when I hear that it was helpful to someone. I like taking pictures. My photo album is full of pictures that I took when I went on a trip.

JINGZI ZHOU

JINGZI ZHOU

I am a kind of discerning person who likes to make close observation of people, especially those in more vulnerable groups. I have taken part in composition contests and Model United Nations conferences on this focus several times and behaved quite well. Besides, I participated enthusiastically in an international voluntary teaching program in Indonesia during this year’s winter break.

Since I have been to 12 countries and many domestic places so far, I am also experienced in travel, thus accumulating experiences of traveling and writing journals.

SHAO YUE

SHAO YUE

I'm a little nostalgic, so I cherish those rare and precious experiences and memories. I always take a notebook and a pen with me, sometimes I write about my feelings and draw some pictures, sometimes I use lenses to record life whether it is the beauty of the ordinary details of life or the extraordinary beauty. I enjoy traveling and adventure. I think the uncertainty of life is one of the most charming things in the world.

SHAO YUE

GYUMIN SHIM

I am very outgoing. I love having new experiences, so, I don't hesitate to experience things such as bungee jumping, sky diving, scuba diving, learning about any martial art, etc. I am very sociable, and I have a lot of friends who love me.

HEEYEON RYU

HEEYEON RYU

​I'm a student dreaming of becoming a diplomat. I love reading social science books, meeting people, and having various experiences. I have regularly listened to the foreign ministry-led "IFANS TALK" lecture as a way of preparing for my future. And now, I'm majoring in political science & international relations, economics, and international development to have a broad perspective.  

SEINA SATO

SEINA SATO

I am a student of Tokyo Woman's Christian University and major English. When I was a high school student, I belonged to a journalism club. I wrote many articles and interviewed many people such as the Japan Meteorological Agency and a professor at Sophia University. In the future, I want to work for a newspaper company. Also, I like watching baseball games, reading comics watching movies like Ghibli or Disney films.

ZIMO WANG

ZIMO WANG

​I AM A FOODIE. That's true! I am really interested in different kinds of cuisine, especially exotic ones. I just cannot help taking photos of food whenever it is served in front of me. My friends always joked that my camera is more hungry than my stomach. Absolutely, I need to feed my camera first of all.

 RADIYAH UCHIYAMA

I study German language and American literature at Japan Women’s University. I am a global adventurer, peaceful nature lover and love exploring the world and meeting new people! I am going to study at Leipzig University and share my experience through this blog. 

YOONHO KIM

YOONHO KIM

​I would like to introduce myself as a dreamer. I already traveled to a lot of countries, 11 countries. I think the most important thing in traveling to foreign countries is meeting new friends who have different backgrounds and views of life - it broadens my perspective and my social network.
