Hi everyone! I am Yukii. I am a Graduate Assistant for International Summer Program Operation at the Office of International Education. This is my third year working for the program.
I have received my Bachelor’s degree in Communication in Fall 2013. I am currently working on my Master’s degree in Instructional Design & Technology.
My primary task is to oversee the program from the office, and I team up with two PAs, Eli and Chie, to make sure everyone’s needs are met. I am going to be taking care of planning and logistics, but I will also join you in some activities and trips. I am excited to have you all this summer! See you soon!
Hello, my name is Eli Hatch and I am one of your Program Assistants this summer!
I graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2009 with a degree in East Asian Languages and Cultures (Japanese) and a minor in Teaching English as a Second Language (TESL). After I graduated, I taught English for two years in Japan and then worked in Detroit, Michigan for three years with Japanese automotive manufacturers. In 2014 I enrolled at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey where I am working towards my joint Master’s in International Education Management and Public Administration.
I’m looking forward to getting to know all of you this summer and helping you work towards your future goals!
Hi! My name is Chie. I am a senior Psychology major in my second year at Emporia State University. I work as an International Orientation Leader to welcome and support new international students at the beginning of every semester.
As a Program Assistant (PA), I will live in the dorms and help you with life at ESU, including studies. I will also be there to listen to you when you are stressed, so feel free to come talk to me anytime; I will be there for you.
I am going to plan and manage fun activities and field trips, which I am very excited about, so that you can experience American culture. I cannot wait to have a great summer with you!
Have a safe trip and see you soon.
