The Purpose of the U.N. Business Career Program

Thank you for giving me this wonderful opportunity. I want to be an United Nation stuff in the future. I wanted to see and feel for myself how the actual staff work every day in order to become a staff member of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, which is my dream for the future. I wanted to be a person who can help people in the future by seeing how the staff solves all the problems in the world through their daily activities.

Your Main Job Description.

For example, we hear about COVID-19 from the WHO president every day and ask how representatives from each country come up with solutions. We are also listening to what kind of measures representatives from all over the world are taking to address the major issues that were at that time. I was able to know how the world is organized. And I felt that there were various problems that I didn't know and I needed to know more. From time to time I was able to say if I had any questions about the subject matter of the actual staff. It was a pity that I couldn't convey it in my own words as I expected, but I was able to touch on the problems of each country while being taught by the actual staff.

Any Lessons? Thought? for this Program?

I wanted to do a dream internship at the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. Since Sadako Ogata was actually enrolled, she thought about what she could do to save refugee children and women, and wanted to solve it and save as many people as possible.But I couldn't do it this time, but thank you for giving me a great opportunity. Thank you very much.

Provide your Tips to Succeed this Program

I couldn't actually go to the headquarters this time, but I am very honored to have experienced the UN internship as the first step to realizing my dream.I think that my will and motivation are the most important. It is true that English ability is very important, but I think that motivation is more important than that.
