SGHプログラム

SGLI in Hawaii②


14days of being inspired doesn't even begin to describe what the SGLI program was to the three of us. Like any other camp you learn how to step out of your comfort zone and socialize with complete strangers. However, with the safe environment of SGLI where cliques are addressed and prejudice is wiped away, I believe I was able to be the most myself in a sense that there was always no consequence of judgement based on my actions. I met adults who've had unimaginable lives, who've "triggered" me and for that are now my role models. I made lifelong friends who are from countries I never expected myself to visit let alone will always have a place to stay. This has no doubt been a rewarding experience.

I applied to this program expecting eye-opening experiences, but still I left Hawaii with a completely different perspective to everything, including Hawaii itself. Thanks to my amazing new friends who go to Punahou School (the school that hosts SGLI) they provided me with the local aspects of Hawaii, the non touristy side of the island, the Hawaii that I never knew. The homelessness that the island suffers, the underlying tension that can emerge through the diversity that the Americans have so much pride of, the repercussions of Pearl Harbor that still continue to this day, the Japanese Americans whom have straddle their sovereignty and loyalty, this is only a taste of the truths that I came to realize throughout 14days of SGLI.

I believe that not only was I able to gain enlightening perspectives, but was also given the opportunity to contribute to the community of SGLI, share my perspective as a Japanese, as a student from ICUHS, as a teenager, and as an individual.
"The community you deserve is the one you help build. "

I am so thankful to have had this opportunity to participate in such a fantastic summer program, and to have joined a loving, diverse family.

SGHプログラム

SGLI in Hawaii ①

7月16日~31日までの2週間、ハワイのプナホウ高校で行われた"Student Global Leadership Institute 2017"に3人の生徒が参加しました。ハワイの青い海と広い空の下、9か国23校の生徒たちとともに学びました。

The 2 weeks at SGLI was something that impacted me largely. 2 weeks seems so short and I thought just 2 weeks wouldn't change much in me.
The 2 weeks in SGLI was different. Meeting new people is always changing especially when you and others have so different backgrounds.
However, through the classroom works, free time and dorm life, we all bonded so much than I expected in 2 weeks. All the classroom works were something that we all had to put effort in it and give your own clear opinions. Sharing your thoughts and knowing others thoughts definitely enriched my mind. Spending time with peers from all over the world in dorms made me think and know about so much more than just in class. In class, we discussed about this year's theme "peace" but in the dorms(outside the school), we shared a lot about ourselves, our countries, our schools, what we think about our country's politics, what we think about American politics etc... My roommates and I would stay up at night and would share so much that I usually don't discuss about.

Our journey of SGLI continues although we came back from Hawaii, the continuing journey is to think more about the things we discussed at Hawaii and finally be peace makers.
