So glad seeing you here! My name is Hannah Nguyen and I will be interning with the World Friendship Center in Hiroshima through IWU Freeman Asia scholarship this July. I’m very excited to immerse myself in the culture and learn more about the effect of the historic atomic bombing in 1945. Due to the unique history of Hiroshima, I want to study the effects on the social fabrics of children’s lives including the loss of families, destruction of social networks, homelessness, and the challenge of ensuring that the next generation grows up to reject violence as a way of settling political disputes.
Besides all that, I’m also just really looking forward to having all the great food and meeting new peoples!
Thanks for reading! More to come!
