Group Camp Leaders: Nana, Shradha, Karen        

Hello everyone. I’m Karuna Little Monkey. I joined EIC 2001(The first EIC!). I was a member of group 2, so my dear camp leaders are Karen, Shradha and Nana.

What are you doing now?

After graduating from one of the university in Japan in the Department of Architecture, I work in a Supreme Court as an electrical system designer. Recently I gave birth to my first child, so I’m currently on childcare leave. I enjoy spending all day with my baby 🙂

What do you remember about EIC?

I remember we did various things such as making T-shirts, drawing on our flags, making bamboo instruments, and created a very long vinyl kites. All activities were so much fun that I missed dearly. I cried a lot during a the farewell time at the graduation ceremony.

By the way, I also remember filling many of the daily diary blanks with “very very very…” because it was so difficult to write in English. I should try more expressing in English 🙂

What is your next challenge or goal?

I want to get licenses related to my job. Also, I want to study English again!

CHEERS to everyone for a healthy and happy life!
