Nikki Vu selected for prestigious Japanese cultural exchange program
18 December 2017
Monash Commerce/Global Arts student, Nikki Vu, has been selected for the 30th Ship for World Youth Leaders Program. Along with 240 young leaders from around the world, Nikki will join this six-week youth development program operated by the Cabinet Office of the Government of Japan.
Twelve young Australians who have demonstrated outstanding leadership and potential in their communities will travel to Japan next month to board the Nippon Maru “Ship for World Youth”. They will then visit Singapore, India and Sri Lanka alongside delegations from India, Mexico, Mozambique, Oman, Peru, Poland, South Africa, Spain, Sri Lanka and Japan.
While on board, participants will attend seminars conducted by field experts, plan independent activities and convene participant-led workshops on cross-cultural understanding, volunteerism, education and youth-led change.
“I am excited by the prospect of being part of a strong network that transcends borders and fosters a spirit of international cooperation,” says Nikki. “This program provides a unique opportunity to equip participants with the knowledge, abilities and insights required to be an active global citizen in an increasingly globalised world.”
