I have found another great opportunity for young people to get exposed to the global agenda and  build global network, while recognized as emerging leaders.  This one focuses in Asia as a region, and the deadline is February 10.  Its word limit is between 800 to 1500 words and you still have some time to think and write. For details, check this website.

I have written about  St. Gallen Wing of Excellence Essay Competition whose deadline is coming this Friday. In fact, I have a meeting to discuss the event in Zurich the other day and I am all very excited!

I would like to encourage young people to apply for these opportunities.  Unless you enter, you will never have a chance, (as in a lottery!)    As you write to apply, your writing skills will get better.   Go for it!

    Dear Ishikura sensei, I admire your iniciatives to get more information and academic resources over the web. I am peruvian, now studying in Tsukuba University. I can see your very busy agenda, but I would like to have a meeting, if you want Skype, or email concerning about education in Japan, business and global opennesss and environment for foreigners. If it is possible, may I contact you by email? I would like to tell you my story. Kind regards,
    Paloma B.
