私が今、考えること

I think technology has changed our world in ways that we often forget. Computers and the Internet are just the beginning of an increasingly fast moving progression towards a completely different future. We cannot even begin to imagine what the world will be like in the next five or even ten years. It is a very exciting, yet challenging time to be alive.

受験生・学生へ一言

ABC = Always Be Curious… One can never know everything, but one can try!
Never give up! If you think something is too difficult or not possible, that might mean you should try even harder or discover a new approach. Finding your dream takes a lot of time and work. The future is always evolving so you must learn how to gain new and different skills at all times. It is inspiring and sometimes scary at the same time. My goal is to help students find their own unique ways to navigate this amazing and rapidly approaching future.
