Personal experience.

In 2014-2015 I had a great opportunity to be part of equivalent program - Vulcanus in Japan. I spent first four months by studying Japanese and learned much more than studying three years on my own back home. Then I did an internship at Mitsubishi Chemical Coorporation Research and Development Synergy Center, which was very valuable experience career wise.

On personal level I have an opportunity to experience daily life in completely different culture and society from my own, for which I am very grateful. I still maintain connection to Japan and even am open for possibility of going back.
