My name is Espen. I’m a 26 year-old Norwegian guy. I currently live in Copenhagen, Denmark where I study mathematics.
I became interested in Japan in my high school days when I started learning the language as a hobby. I especially like Japanese stand-up comedy. My other hobbies include reading, watching movies and playing the game of Go.
I have travelled to Japan six times, four of which has been with the World Campus – Japan Program. For me, travelling is not as much about where I go or what I see, as it is about who I meet and what I experience with those people. Travelling with World Campus International has given me a unique opportunity to meet people from all over the world and form lasting friendships. It has also taught me more about myself than I thought possible. I hope that as your counselor I can bring you out of your comfort zone so that you can do the same.
I’m looking forward to meeting you in Japan this summer and getting to know you! See you in Japan!
