Yukiko Miyauchi (Nishiwaki) – BA 2003
Yukiko graduated from the University of Oregon with a BA in International Studies in 2003. Yukiko is originally from Japan and studied abroad through our program at University of Oregon.
Yukiko believes that studying International Studies helped her to learn that ‘ignorance is a shame.’ She realized that being aware of history, people, and culture led her to become a good citizen in her home country, Japan, and act as a responsible foreigner when traveling abroad. She said, “I am thankful for what I learnt and I hope many of students from the department will change the world for better.”
She currently works in a supervising position at Coherent.Inc in Japan.
