Tyagita Indahsari Widodo

Hello, my name is Tyagita. I studied at Sophia University in the fall 2014 under SAIMS program. I really enjoyed this program and I liked it very much. I have many experiences there. I also learned a lot, not only about the academic study but also about the culture in Japan. There are so many interesting subjects at Sophia University and some of them are really different from my major in Indonesia. But I liked trying these subjects. Sophia University is really cool and awesome. The people are very welcoming and kind. And of course, I made so many new friends while I was there, not only from Japan, but also from other countries such as the U.S.A., Korea, China, and Hong Kong. Although I was a minority (Muslim), I was not discriminated. And Sophia University also provided a pray room for Muslims. I really appreciate this. I like Sophia University so much. I hope I can go there again in the near future.
