KIZUNA project~ A short trip to Japan!

Sad love stories aside.....
I've been accepted into the KIZUNA project~~

In conjunction to my application to go on exchange in 2013, I spontaneously applied for another scholarship for a short exchange program. This particular scholarship is called the KIZUNA project which to my surprise is organised by AFS (the exchange company in which I was involved with for my previous exchange in 2010). 

The KIZUNA project is a program sponsored by the Japanese government with aims of raising awareness for the Japanese reconstruction plans, and promoting global understanding of Japan's revival efforts in response to the Great Japan Earthquake.

We will visit the affected areas of the Great East Japan Earthquake and learn about the situation of Japan's reconstruction from the disaster. Later, we will also visit schools and do various volunteer activities organised by Japan International Cooperation Center (JICE).

This program will commence in December 2012~ where about 200 Australian students and educators will be sent to Japan for 2 weeks.

A lot of my YouTube viewers have asked me about the earthquake that happened last year.. I will use this opportunity to film my experience and hopefully answer those viewers' questions :)

Pretty excited about it hey!!
