Dear international friends, my name is Delnur Anwar, I am Uyghur nationality, came from China. I joined HUISA committee 3 years ago. Now I am working as HUISA treasure. I really love this group, and those HUISA guys who are always there for you whenever you need them.
They always say I am the oldest committee member, doing the same things every year. I want to say that, during these 3 years working with 3 different committee groups, maybe only I know, every committee members who ever worked for Hokudai international students always doing their best or even beyond their capability.
In my point of view, HUISA is more like a family. We had quarrels, tears, laughter together for every meeting, events, but nobody gave up this family even for once. It is pretty hard to believe we get through so many difficulties and made so many things for our international students. Personally, I am proud to be in HUISA, and I am also very proud of every one who was in this family.
Konnichiwa mina san!!! I am Isma Rosyida, from Indonesia.
First, the Sapporo`s life. Why? Because Sapporo is an astonishing city with abundance of natural beauty and a charming sense of Japanese culture. During the spring, i can experience the relaxing beauty of cherry blossoms everywhere. In summer, I can see the colorful flowers around the city. In autumn, I can see the wonderful falls, and during the cold winter, I can experience the plenty of snow fall. Also, the people in Sapporo are honest, friendly, kind hearted, and helpful. This glorious and calm environment helps me to ensure a pleasant learning experience.
And, second is HUISA. As an international student, I know how hard it is to arrive in a different country with a different language, different environment, different atmosphere and also different culture. Besides, Japanese language was initially one of the great barriers for me to move around and mingle easily in society. But being one of the HUISA member, I found smiles and fun. We have lots of events and activities, such as cultural events, sports festival, trips, hokudaisai, etc. Students from all over the world, having different races, different colors of skin, different backgrounds and different cultures, communicate and get to know each other. We were so passionate to have activities together. Meeting students from different ethnicities and cultures has taught me how to interact with people from all walks of life. I really found the spirit of unity in diversity in HUISA. Besides, all the HUISA committees are very friendly and helpful, so whenever I have any related problems, they will definitely help me. Once I became a part of HUISA member, I don`t feel that I was away from my home. HUISA makes me feel like I have new family in Sapporo. For me, being able to share experiences with and learn of attitudes and customs of people from around the world is a most enriching facet of life in Sapporo.
Someday, I will be going back home with real fond memories which will be cherished forever. I will smile, a very big smile, knowing that I had made a good choice to be the part of HUISA family.
