During my time interning at Moriumius, I had the privilege of meeting great people from all over the world. I am studying abroad in Spain this fall, and now I have some friends to visit in Denmark and France. Additionally, I became more confident in addressing my opinions. There were definitely a lot of ups and downs during my time at Moriumius, but ultimately I will look back on this experience with fond memories.
- trying hoya, a local specialty known in English as a “sea pineapple” for the first time
- making a finsta account with the other interns where we shared our inside jokes during our time as interns
- countless adventures in Sendai
- getting to eat so much food all the time
- the close access to mountains/beaches/ocean

Though the work at Moriumius wasn’t always what I had anticipated, I was fortunately always working with another intern. We never ran out of things to talk about, and they really helped me with some mental health issues that I had been experiencing the previous year. With that in mind, I believe that I really gained a lot from my internship at Moriumius and from living in Ogatsu, Japan.
Following this internship, I stayed in Japan for an additional 6 weeks. I have been back in America for several days now, and I am happy to be home. I’m looking forward to the next time I can see my new friends abroad in Europe, and also to see my coworkers from my various jobs in Japan this summer. I have been told by several people already that I seem more confident or more happy than I did several months ago. I feel this way too. I am nervous about the upcoming school year, but I will really try to keep the positivity that I have going for as long as I can.
