Flag of Japan, From Wikipedia

Before coming here I was very excited. But I was also a little bit nervous because I had never participated in volunteer work.
Every other member of the volunteer team is a foreigner, which means I must always speak English, and if I can’t explain my story for them, I can’t use Japanese. In Japan, our teachers a little bit know some Japanese, but they don’t understand Japanese. I must be thinking and talking. But after I arrived there I could forget these nervous feelings.

But now I don’t want to go back to Japan. Of course I miss my Japanese friends and teachers. But I don’t want to leave all the volunteer members and Mahathai.
The Father Ray Day Care Center is so good to work at as I like the children. It is fun and interesting, and sometimes tiring. If I could find another job as a volunteer it would be as a children’s English teacher. This working will be more fun and exciting for me.
