Tell everyone a little about yourself and what you hope to gain from the Global Ethics Network.
I am currently an undergraduate student at International Christian University, majoring in International Relations and minoring in Politics. I was an exchange student at Middlebury College this past academic year. I am writing my senior thesis on human security and human development issues regarding aid to AIDS orphans under the supervision of Professor Katsuhiko Mori. I am interested in international development. From the Global Ethics Network, I hope to interact and engage with experts and peers with similar interests to further deepen my understanding and to gain new perspectives.
