1. Current Interns

Mao Mizutani
Term: May to July, 2018
Profile: I was an exchange student at George Mason University from August 2017 to May 2018, and I am studying Political Science at Sophia University in Tokyo. During my exchange program, I mainly studied Conflict Resolution that includes essential strategies and skills that can be applied in real world situations including the US-Japan relations. Therefore, I believe that this internship gives me opportunities to apply what I learned to live situations and to know how they take roles. Also, to make use of this opportunity living around Washington D.C. area as much as possible, I have decided to start this internship and expand my possibility by exploring D.C. which is the center of economy and politics in the world. To me, working here in D.C. is the greatest opportunity to see the world politics and economy from much closer perspective rather than being in Japan, and it raises my awareness of global issues every single day. Also, it makes me feel more responsible about the US-Japan relations as a young Japanese leading the future of the US-Japan relations.
Seeing Japan from an objective and international perspective gives me a chance to learn positive and negative aspects of Japan, and it is something that I have never experienced in Japan. Thus, as a young Japanese that has been seeing outside of Japan, I would like to think and seek how Japan should take a role in international community. In addition, I would like to polish my skills (research, networking, translation and critical analysis) by facing challenges through this internship, and eventually, I would like to grow into a person that can make use of new and strengthened knowledge and skills in a practical way.
