Message to Potential Candidates to Ogawa Seminar

I joined Prof. Ogawa’s Seminar because I’ve always had interests ineducation system in developing countries since I was a child and wanted to learn about education development in order to improve the quality of education and economy in developing countries. My main concern is education for women in Sub-Saharan Africa. I believe that women have a lot of potentials and they are key to the future of Africa. In this seminar, I’m looking forward to studying with students who have the same interests and goals. I believe that I will be able to gain a lot of knowledge, skills and experiences with great people in this Prof. Ogawa Seminar for my future career.
