Interests: Economics and Business

Growing up in the United States, I was exposed to and engaged with individuals from a variety of cultures and world-views. This interaction directed me towards engaging with diverse viewpoints and perspectives, ultimately inspiring me to initiate this blog. 

Through my experiences in various ethnic environments, I would like to inspirit future generations, especially in Japan, to open up their perspective towards the global environment and develop interests towards the subject of economics and business.

アメリカで育った私は、様々な文化や世界観の人々と触れ合い、関わりました。この相互作用により、私は多様な視点や概念と向き合うようになり、それを発信したいという考えに至りました。

様々な環境での経験を活かし、世界中の若者世代がグローバルなテーマに対して興味を注がれ、その関心を高められるブログを書いていきたいと考えています。

Maki Umeki

Age: 18

Interests: Psychology and Performing Arts

Coming from an international background, growing up in South Korea, and studying in Japan, I was able to occupy myself in a global environment, often being struck with new cultures and various perspectives. However, observing the impediment “differences“between people from all around the globe, I realized that the only way to create a society where people can peacefully live is to make a trustworthy relationship with other countries, ultimately collaborating to resolve social issues. With this, I decided to initiate the blog alongside the editor-in-chief to contribute to a society where people can realize real global issues they are facing and create a cooperative environment where students who desire to share their opinions and knowledge can do so freely. 

My blogs will be centered around raising awareness about Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Through the educational articles, I aspire to motivate younger Japanese generations to become interested in this subject that is vital to creating a global, collaborative community across boundaries.

Interests: Data Science and Statistics

Being half Taiwanese and half Japanese, I have been living in Tokyo for the past 15 years, where I have been exposed to an international and musical environment and have cherished the moments of sharing cultural values and beliefs through the power of music. 

 

Through my musical background and interest in STEM subjects, I hope to combine these subjects and use the latest artificial intelligence technology to analyze the process of collaboration and dissemination related to musical works and styles, opening new doors for people to understand and appreciate cultural differences through music and art.

興味:データサイエンス・統計学

台湾と日本のハーフである私は、国際的、そして音楽的な環境に身を置き、音楽の力を通じて文化的な価値観や信念を共有する瞬間を大切にしてきました。

私は幅広い音楽活動とSTEM科目への興味を通して、これらの科目を組み合わせて、高い可能性を持ちながらも環境的に恵まれていないアーティストを輩出したいと考えています。音楽やアートを通して、人々が互いの文化的な違いを理解し、尊重するための新しい扉を開きたいと思っています。
