University education

I want people to enhance their own happiness by improving their ability to live. That is why I am involved in education. By expanding the cultural comfort zone (the range where you can be yourself) that everyone has, I hope to foster more people with free ideas.

 Free-thinking brings out the true nature of things and is the engine that drives us forward, even when we encounter unfamiliar and uncertain situations in society, the economy, and the environment.
