Two third year students, Kanda Misuzu and Nomura Mikael Kai, received the Vice President Reward of Hiroshima University for their activities.
Kanda Misuzu was involved in Model United Nations since high school days. After entering Hiroshima University, she started a MUN circle and conducted MUN at high schools in Hiroshima Prefecture to raise awareness on international issues.
She also took part in the 2020 Students’ Peace Summit conducted by Hiroshima University.
Here is her comment on receiving the reward:
I am honoured to receive such an award! I cannot believe that it has already been 3 years since I started the activity of promoting Model United Nations among high school students in Hiroshima. I think the project wouldn’t have lasted this long without people around me. I appreciate all the people who supported me to keep running the project.
Nomura Mikael Kai has been active as a Youth Peace Volunteer guiding international visitors in the Peace Park. In August 2020, he introduced these activities in a Webinair by the Mayors for Peace and exchanged opinions with students from 16 countries. He is also active as a volunteer in Hatsukaichi City to help children from Philippines in school.
Here is his comment on receiving the reward:
I am happy to receive the news. This is thanks to all the support I receive from friends and professors. I hope that this will make me more motivated to be active in social activities!
