My name is Frank Floris, just call me Frank. I will be the Education Intern, supporting the Education Manager, Celi Dolovitz. Celi and I will be responsible for the education related parts of the 2011 World Campus – Japan program, which will be a lot of fun, I assure you. I’m from the Netherlands living in the city of Leiden and a World Campus alumnus from the 2010 program.
The reason I’m living in Leiden is that I’m attending university there, studying Japanese and nearing the end of my second year. I have great interest in Japanese as a language and am intrigued by Japanese culture as well. My hope is to become a translator or teacher, though teaching or translating what exactly and where is still vague.
World Campus-Japan program is giving me the opportunity to expand my horizon even further, allowing me to learn more about people and countries all over this world, and similarly allows me to teach others about my own country. Being the education intern should also test me for my future career path. Ultimately I hope to assure that you will have at least as great a time in Japan as I had last year.
I look forward to meeting all of you,
(Education Intern in the Summer ’11 Road Team)
