What does “contributing to society” mean to you?

I believe that social contribution means being grateful for this society where I can grow in a unique way, while also returning the favor by building a world where people and nature can live together happily.

I am studying abroad in a place with a rich natural environment, where I am spending every day learning about oceanography while cherishing once-in-a-lifetime encounters and connections with the people I meet. In the future, I want to start new projects and do research on living creatures to help conserve the global environment.

I want to constantly work with a flexible mind and a spirit that welcomes change.
