INTERVIEW

Please introduce yourself.

I'm Zin Mar Tun from Myanmar. I studied statistics(B.Sc Statistics ) at university and worked for a travel agency after graduating from university. My favorite sports are badminton, boxing, karate,I was actually learning boxing and karate.

Did you learn boxing because you wanted to do it yourself?

Yes. Whether I'm a woman or not, I thought I should protect by myself, so I went to a club to learn.

Why did you decide to become a care worker?

It was because my father was paralyzed on the right side of his body and couldn't move. Actually, there are no care workers in Myanmar, and nurses are supposed to take care of facility user. And one of my acquaintances in Myanmar was studying as an intern of a care worker in Japan, and he showed me the textbook of a care worker one day.After seeing that, I became interested in care workers and wanted to actually study in Japan and work as a care worker.

How is the study in Japan?

I'm a foreigner, so it's difficult to use technical terms, but I got used to it because I studied hard. Also, my classmates are kind, so it's fun every day.

What is good about school?

Actually, I have a friend from Myanmar who is studying about care worker in other school. When I asked them about their schools, I thought our school is very earnest. Also, although it is quite busy so I can't use a lot yet, the school has a wonderful library and it seems that the number of books is over 30,000. Finally the existence of a student support center. Even before I entered the school, they supported me in various guidance and procedures, so I was able to get into life in Japan smoothly.

Do you have any dreams or goals for the future?

The first is to pass the national examination and become a care worker. And I want to help those who need care.

What kind of care worker do you want to be?

I want to be a care worker who has acquired the knowledge and skills perfectly.

Please give a message to foreigners who want to study in Japan.

I recommend studying in Japan. Because I think it is better to have skills, knowledge, and various experiences outside of your home country while you are young. In terms of Japanese ability, I took N2, but there are still many words I don't understand. So, if you want to study abroad in Japan, you should take at least N2. You should also understand Japanese customs.
