HTIC would like to congratulate these HTIC graduates for their recent and continuing successes!

Otono Naniwa (Summer 2010 Graduate; Fall 2013 Graduate of Tulane University):

Otono just graduated with a B.A. from the Freeman School of Business at Tulane University in December 2013 with a major in Management and a minor in Accounting.
Of her experience, Otono writes: "What I learned at HTIC really helped me, both with transferring to Tulane and with my graduation there. My first semester at Tulane was really hard. I felt lonely, and study was very hard, but gradually I got use to things. The Business school program was really good. Being a minority there was difficult at first, but it was great getting to know more people from different countries and cultures. I really enjoyed interaction in the classes and speaking English with amazing people! I just graduated December 2013, and I am currently looking for a job!"

Ken Hamanaka (Summer 2010 grad and former Student Government President; May 2013 Graduate of West Virginia University):

Ken graduated from West Virginia University in May 2013, and was then hired as an assistant coach at Lycoming College in Williamsport, PA., which is a Division 3 school.

Ken writes: "What I do is pretty much everything! (lol) ... mainly scouting and video stuff, but assisting [the] head coach, helping recruiting staff, organizing road games (itineraries), equipment stuff, etc... For now, my future plan is to be a head coach for the Japan national team. This may change though. I also went to Estonia last summer with the Division 1 College All Star Team as an assistant/operation guy."

Natsuka Koizumi (Winter 2010 Grad and former Student Government Speaker):

Natsuka majored in psychology at the University of Maryland University College, in Yokota Air Base in Tokyo, Japan.

Natsuka writes: "I am still working at a local elementary school to help the students with their English lessons and at my parents' company. But I was just hired by the City hall. I will start working there from April!"

Yoichi Tamaki (HTIC Winter 2011 Graduate and Tokai University DDP Student)

As you've read already (see article below), Yoichi is studying international relations at Moscow State Institute International Relations (MGIMO) in Moscow, Russia. He is in the first year of his Master's degree program and eventually wants to find a job in Moscow or elsewhere in Russia.

We will post further graduate updates shortly!
