Whether it is work or study, my principle is always passion, enthusiasm and patience. Whether it is working individually or working in group, I am always serious and responsible for my duty, and put the best efforts in pursuing the final goals. In relationship, I welcome others with my friendliness, helpfulness and sincerity. In community, I utilize my interpersonal skills, presentation skills and leadership skills. With all traits that I have, I want to express who I am and what I can do, so that I can earn respect, trust and cooperation of others.
During my time as a student, my main concern is to develop myself fully in all aspects, not only studying. That is the reason why I always try to balance the time I spend on studying and on other leisure activities. For instance, I have been participating in a variety of extracurricular activities in school, such as music performances and sports, where I can enjoy myself after hard-working days and make a lot more friends. I also learned some music instruments such as piano and guitar, and train myself regularly in gymnasium and school’s swimming pool. My aim is not only to accumulate more knowledge about art and literature but also relieve myself from studying stresses and be better in social communication, while enhancing my physical health, so that I can be both physically and mentally healthy, which in turn benefit both my studies and daily life.
Upon learning about TAKEDA Business Game and its challenging yet interesting contents, I am extremely interested in joining the contest. I sincerely hope I can contribute all of my knowledge and experience regarding the game to help my teammates, and ultimately bring the glorious victory to APU.
