I'm so excited to meet the kids! As this is my first time traveling to Japan, I'm very excited to experience the cultural differences the kids have from my own. I look forward to learning from their perspective as I share my experiences with them. Sports and playing games are great ways to connect people of different languages and cultures. I’d like to use these tools to promote communication and cohesion of the group as well as teach lesson of team work and cooperation.
