My Personal Goals for the Future

Paula Mia Põllu (From Tallinn City Estonia)

I have always wanted to study abroad. I have a strong passion for seeing and getting to know different cultures all around the world. I want to grow as a person, develop a global mindset and have a better understanding and empathy towards others around me. With this once in a lifetime opportunity, isn’t Japan a great place to start?
I have been interested in the Japanese language and culture ever since I was a child.
It would be a wonderful experience to learn another foreign language and connect with the people there on a more emotional level.
