Hi! My name is Zoe Simonovic and I am a senior at Texas State University majoring in advertising. I am very excited about our trip to Japan. I can’t believe it is finally here! I am due to graduate in December 2023 and I am so happy to have the opportunity to study abroad before I depart.
I am a huge sushi lover, so I am looking forward to trying the wide variety of cuisines that Japan provides. I am also interested in Japanese architecture and how it preserves and highlights the natural surroundings that have existed there for centuries. Japan’s effort to protect the environment it thrives in is something that I find very inspiring. I feel like everyone could learn something from this country and how they grow and thrive but still make an effort to uphold traditions and keep true to oneself.
