Yuki Kojima ’22 – IES Dublin, Ireland

Hi everyone!

My name is Yuki Kojima, and I am a senior majoring in Business and Psychology with a concentration in Human Resources. At Hope, I served as a Japanese Native Assistant/ Teaching Assistant for 2 and a half years. Being able to introduce Japanese culture to Hope students brought me so much joy! At Hope, I also worked as a research assistant for the Psychology department and for Frost Center for Data and Research. I will miss doing research with incredible lab partners and supportive supervisors.

I was born and raised in Japan until 2013. I came to the US when I was 13 years old and have been here ever since, and I will be spending my last semester as a college student in Dublin, Ireland. I have loved being an international student in the US, so I am confident that being an international student in Ireland would be amazing as well!

Through direct enrollment, I will be studying at Trinity College Dublin along with local students. I am excited to learn more about Irish culture, meet new people, and share my experiences with you all!
