   On June 13th, TOBITATE NEXT JAPAN projects send off party and before-the-trip-training was held in Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology at Tokyo.
TOBITATE NEXT JAPAN is a project for students in high school and university to have education abroad, supported by the system of cooperation between the government and private sectors. This program has started on 2014, and 303 members were elected after document elimination and interview exam, from 514 applications, as first members of high school students in this program. From our school, 3 girls were elected (4 students in Ehime prefecture).
In the send off party, Mr. Shimomura, Minister of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, encouraged the students to develop 3 important skills (problem solving skill, creativity skill, and humanity skill) and make their dream come true, through this foreign education.
   Our students will fly (TOBITATE) to Milton (USA), Nice (France), and Firenze (Italy) on July!
Down below is the students comments.

I will be going to France to study music for 2 weeks, as one of the first members of TOBITATE. During before-the-trip-training, I had a meaningful time by communicating with friends who has a high global aims, and share each others thoughts, which was very incentive for me. There are some worries for going abroad, but I will take a good effort to make this study successful.

I was glad that I had chance and able to come to this Tokyo training. There were many same-year-old students who are already acting globally, and I was excited. Also to hear some words from the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology was also interesting. The 3 skills he taught, problem solving skill, creativity skill, and humanity skill, I would like to earn them during the study in overseas. In the before-the-trip-training, we separate in several groups and expressed each others opinions, which made our purpose of this foreign study more clear. I was able to make network throughout Japan, so it was a meaningful day for me. Not forgetting thankfulness to everyone, I want to uplift myself toward the study.

I am going to Firenze in Italy by the support of TOBITATE JAPAN program. In Italy, I will study Italian architecture and develop my English skill. During before-the-trip-training, I was able to know and talk about the goal of the foreign study and dream with high school students of all around the Japan, which was a good chance for me to grow up. Also I felt that I am still inexperienced, by listening many kinds of aims of this study, language, sports, arts, volunteers, and others. I think now, in the age of high school student, you have to go overseas more aggressively. In near future, 10~20 years later, we are the generation to lead Japan
