“With My Scholarship Voucher, I’ll Go To After School Classes and Follow a Carreer Path In Art.”
I now live in Aizuwakamatsu City, but I used to live 20 kilometers away from the nuclear plant in Narahama Town on Hama Street. Going back and forth between evacuation centers and relative’s homes, I have settled now, and I do not attend the High School where I had hoped to go, but go to a high school in Aizu. I have always worked towards a carreer path in Art, and I have finally been given the opportunity with this scholarship voucher to reach my goals. I am going to use the money to buy materials like paints and canvas so that I can do well in my classes. In the case of hard times, I will try to help others.

“Striving Now For A Successful Future.”
Ishimaki City’s Ogatu Town, the place of my birth, was decimated on that fateful day in the tsunami. I escaped to a nearby mountain. The road was very difficult, so I was pressed by a feeling of obligation to help those around me who could not walk or had trouble moving quickly. Last month, I received a letter from one of the elderly persons who I had helped. It was a letter of gratitude for the help that I gave on that day. I was so glad that I had helped those in need. I have not yet decided what I want to be in the future, but I would like to do something in which I can help those in need. For that purpose, I am trying my best in my studies and in my after school club activity.

“Not Pressuring My Dear Mother By Using the Scholarship Voucher to Take the Entrance Exam To Get Into High School.”
My mother and I currently live a refugees from the nuclear event. I cannot go to the cram school I always went to, and my mother lost her job. I asked my mother to help me because I am trying to pass the entrance exam, despite our poverty, but thanks to this scholarship voucher, I can go to cram school to prepare, without putting pressure on my mother. On top of that, no matter how thankful I am, my mom is more important than my feelings of thanks. With the special love of a child for her mother, every day, every minute, every second, I move forward with thanks to my mother, by trying and studying hard. I hope that I can help Fukushima by doing this. Then, towards my dream, one step at a time I want to move forward.

It was decided that I learned most in a private supplementary school and entered the university of the aim. It became the support of the heart in uneasiness, puzzlement and impatient to have supported in form called the contribution heartily. Thank you so far.
