Expand your horizons and become a more confident and responsible person

My daughter, who is in the 5th grade, participated as a FUKUOKA KIDS. She was able to broaden her perspective on the world by communicating with foreign children of the same generation through the screen, and she was able to increase her understanding that foreigners are not just Westerners. Furthermore, the Junior Ambassadors' computer skills stimulated my children to use computers more frequently, which was also a benefit. In addition, they found group work interesting, as they researched about the country through dance and became interested in global issues by learning about the SDGs.
Despite her poor English, she seemed to have gained confidence by speaking without hesitation, and I was very impressed with her performance. At home, we had a lot of fun talking about the Junior Ambassadors' very specific dreams and her discovery that people wear different clothes depending on their religion.
