Message to Potential Candidates to Ogawa Seminar

It is truly a great honor for me to be a member of the Ogawa seminar (I call it as family). Professor Ogawa is a person with a firm inner heart and lofty ideals. He is always generously trying to pass his knowledge, faith, vision, and dreams to his students. His rich international experiences, extensive connections, invaluable advice, and strongest support, enabled me to deepen my view, change my mindset, build self-confidence, and figure out myself and my future career goal. Ogawa seminar students are smart-working, warm-hearted, determined, open-minded, independent, and team players. In this atmosphere, I firmly believe that Ogawa seminar is a wonderful platform where to discipline yourself, find out yourself, and achieve your goals. Come to us, and be the best of yourself.
