I am very grateful to be one of the first students to be going on the exchange to Japan. I am very excited to be going on this trip for 2 weeks. I am excited for what will happen during my journey to japan and in japan. I am prepared for the preparation stage and learning the language. So far it has been a good experience. I would like to thank Novotel for sponsoring this trip and the staff members that supported me. I would also like to thank my parents for encouraging me to go for this opportunity. I look forward to the upcoming classes and the trip to japan!
