[August 2006]

As many of you are aware of, I graduated from Stanford University with a master's degree last fall and came back to Japan. I completed a twelve-month-long program called "International Educational Administration and Policy Analysys", and wrote a monograph on the primary educational reform in the Philippines, co-financed by the World Bank and the Japan Bank for Intenational Cooperation (To download the paper, click here).

Now I'm headed to Manila to work for the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF). I'm truly excited and looking forward to working for the children in the country where my heart resides - the Philippines - and being able to (hopefully) apply what I learned at school to the real world. If any of you happen to be on this side of the planet, please do drop me a note so that I can take you to a round of golf or a dive in the beautiful ocean!
