This summer was really hot and it was challenging to save electricity, but as the weather slowly cooled down, we gradually felt the coming of the autumn season. Tokyo Tech just started the Autumn Semester this October and many students are flocking to the campus.

The Yamaguchi-Takada Lab. welcomed two new overseas students and we are excited to welcome them on board our team.

We would like to introduce profiles of new members in this article.

New Students Profile

 

Name: AUXILLOS John

Grade: M1

From: Philippines

Project site: Mongolian

Hobby:

Traveling, Reading (History, Non-Fiction), Skiing, Technology, Philosophy, Digital Art, Photography

 

Reason why choose Yamaguchi-Takada Laboratory:

I coincidentally stumbled upon the Yamaguchi-Takada Lab one afternoon while searching for master level programs at a coffee shop in Shanghai. The Lab’s mission and goals was what primarily attracted me to inquire and later apply for the “International Development Engineering” program. I am not an engineer (coming from an Economics & Finance background) but I understand that there is a lot that needs to be done in the lesser developed countries like that of where I am from to improve lives.

 

First impression of Japan:

Japan for me is a country of extreme contrasts. While it is technologically advanced, it also maintains its many of its old cultural traditions. The delicious Japanese foods are simple to look at and yet preparations take time and a lot of care. Japanese have a culture of being extremely passionate about what they do but it can simply be a passion for Anime (for example).

 

Objectives in Yamaguchi-Takada Laboratory:

To continue to be passionate about making a difference in this world.
