Why I became a BSAJ member: The main reason I was interested in BSAJ is that there are very few Japanese students in this school with students of various nationalities and backgrounds. I was wondering. There are many students from Asian countries such as South Korea and China, but why are there so few Japanese? I thought. There are few high school students who do not know the existence of boarding schools, knowledge, and information in Japan, and do not even know that such schools exist. .. .. I thought. Through this activity, I hope that Japanese high school students will be interested in this wonderful boarding school and can help them in some way. I think.  
Activities at BSAJ: I hope I can share my various experiences as a current student and share information about the school. I think.  
What if you didn't decide to enroll in a boarding school? : I went to a large public school with 1700 students in junior high school. From that time on, I wasn't satisfied with the academic part, so I took the exam at a private high school in Los Angeles and passed it, so if I couldn't get into Andbar, I would probably have gone to that school.  
Fun in boarding school life: spend your days with talented friends from all over the world, inspire each other on the same campus, and challenge yourself together, without relying on your parents at all. I think it's good to be able to support each other and grow.
