Having been running straight toward one goal for the past years, I am now standing at the starting point. Since I got involved in an NGO based in Japan, my concern about poverty reduction and international development has started to grow up. Particularly, studying at the Institute of Development Studies (IDS) was one of the best choices I had ever made. Soon after receiving my degree in Law and leaving the Kagawa University, I was provided great opportunities to study a number of fresh issues and cutting-edge approaches on an area of poverty reduction, with my passionate colleague from all over the world. Now, I am at the starting point of my career as a poverty reduction specialist.
I am now on holiday at a small village in the Northern England, and leaving for Cambodia on September 25th. My first work as a professional will be with the International Programme on the Elimination of Child Labour (IPEC) at the International Labour Organisation (ILO). I will have been working in Phnom Penh until the middle of March 2010. Without doubt, this is a challenging mission for me; therefore, I will gain the largest input if I can complete it at the end.
As William Wordsworth used to love a little village, Grasmere, I enjoy peaceful atmosphere in this neighbour village, Windermere. Although the wind makes feel a little cold, it will passionate me to become a professional more and more.
