My name is Iris Spruit and I’m from the Netherlands. I will be one of the program counselors this summer and I’m very excited to be part of the staff this year. We will do our best to make your experience in this year’s World Campus – Japan unforgettable.
I have a great interest in Japan and its culture and that is why I’m studying Japanese at Leiden University. In addition, I’m studying psychology, because I have a great interest in people and especially in how the brain works. I really enjoy my studies and my life in Leiden.
It is a great opportunity for me to be a program counselor this year. This will be my third time traveling with World Campus and my second time being a counselor for World Campus – Japan. I had a great time the last two times. The first time I traveled with World Campus International was the first time I went to Japan. I was quite nervous to stay in host families and meet so many different people, but it was just so awesome! My host families were all really nice and I really enjoyed meeting so many people from different countries. I learned a lot about Japan and the world. The next year I was given the opportunity to be a counselor. It was hard work but it was worth it and it was a great experience for me. This year I will be back as a counselor again and I’m really looking forward to it.
I’m really excited to get to know you all!
