Hello, EIC family!
I’m Kensuke and I participated in EIC in 2014.
When I joined EIC in 2014, I was in the 6th grade elementary school!

Me and Pubu

What are you doing now?

I’m studying to enter university. I have to summarize my research about folk tales handed down in the Kinki district because I have to submit to the university as a screening of entrance exam. Also, I have to translate my summary into English to submit it to school. So, I’m translating with my poor English😭

What do you remember about EIC?

I was very nervous at first when I participated because I had not joined such a big event without any acquaintance. However, all camp leaders and participants were kind. So, I eventually made many friends and a lot of special memories.
Also, in “My Dream” Presentation, I was glad because I can find some friends had the same dream as me. My dream then, was becoming a great baseball player like “Babe Ruth”. I played baseball when I was elementary school student. So, I had such a dream. Moreover, I did practice my swings (batting) during EIC.

What is your next challenge or goal?

My immediate goal is to enter to the university I want to study there because the university’s volleyball club is strong. So, I’d like to play volleyball. Also, since the university is far from my hometown, I have to start living by myself. If I failed the entrance exam and enter same university as my sister, I might live with my sister😇. I’d like to avoid that…

Message to EIC Family

These days, it’s difficult to make any challenge and real communication but there is not a waste in our lives.
Let’s think about what we have to do and want to do in such situation surrounding us.
I will do my best too.

Thank you for reading! Have a nice day!!
