Real Life

Three years after my first engagement with JASC at the Japadele orientation at the Yoyogi Center in Tokyo, the memories and impressions from JASC are still vividly an integral part of my day to day life: through strengthened friendship with the deles , my academic studies which took me to Hitotsubashi University for a year, as well as independent research, focusing on Japan's role as a major donor to the developing world.

What we all grasped intuitively, and had time to reflect on after JASC, was the invaluable process of bridging, human bridging, that occurred among the deles and that now, years later, still holds and will continue to hold meaning, adding strength to the relationship among two individuals, two communities, and two countries, and at the larger scale, networks of communities in our global society.
