2020 Student Introduction Video

ARI proudly presents this short movie about the Class of 2020!

Have you met this year’s ten participants from seven countries, who against all odds were able to come to ARI?

For the 2020 academic year, due to the spread of the coronavirus, 19 of the candidates were not able to enroll
as they were hindered by an array of factors such as city blockades, borders closing, and visas being canceled. In such a situation, 8 students from Asia and Africa and 2 students from Japan gathered and started their training.
We are happy to now be able to introduce them and their dreams for the future to you in this video.

The video was created for the 2020 Harvest Thanksgiving Celebration (HTC) held in October. We express our warm thanks to Momoko Watanabe, who directed and edited this video, as well as assistant editors Kai Shinoda and Noriko Nakayama.
