Message for my supporters from Ines

October 4, 2022

Ms. Nkusi Ines Ineza, an exchange students to TUFS from the Protestant Institute of Arts and Social Sciences (PIASS), sent us a message to her upporters. She will study at TUFS from Fall Semester 2022 to Spring Semester 2023.

She could realize her dream to study in Japan with the financial support for her life expenses by Yazaki Corporation and a roundtrip air ticket provided by the Inter-University Exchange Project (Africa), aka IAfP. We, with IAfP's members, will support her to make her life in Japan fruitful and secure when needed.

The following is her message.


I'm INEZA NKUSI INES, a Rwandan student in development studies majoring in natural resources and environmental management at the Protestant Institute of Arts and Social Sciences in RWANDA.
As a student in environmental management, my interest in Japan is to learn from the environmental protection measures and mechanisms of Japan (the developed country) and the lessons to teach Rwanda as a developing country.

I am very happy also to be in Japan as I was dreaming to join this country as a Karate player since my childhood because I found that it is the origin of karate and I can say that my dreams came true.
I would like to thank the Japan Student Services Organization (JASSO), and YAZAKI Corporation for their great support of my life in Japan. Big thanks to the African Studies Center at Tokyo University of Foreign Studies and the Inter-University Exchange Project (Africa), for the warm support from Rwanda, up to now you have played a big role in order to reach my dreams and continue my studies through this program, and thank you for giving African students opportunity of going abroad and exploring new adventures.
