Having been born and raised in Japan, attending a Japanese university seemed to be the natural—or even only—choice for me. However, I decided to study abroad after learning about American liberal arts education from my sister. I applied to both schools in US and Japan, attended the University of Tokyo for a semester, and quit. Thanks to generous scholarships from the Tokyo Club and the Grew Bancroft Foundation, I got to study at Williams College in US for four years. After college, I worked at a consulting firm in Tokyo and New York office, took 2-year hiatus at Harvard Business School, and now am working as an Engagement Manager at a same consulting firm’s D.C. office. I am also the organizer of Japanese Women Roundtable – a community for young Japanese professional women.
