Fall 2019 Scholars

Lawrence Diblasio

I am a Human Resource Major at Shidler Business College and will be studying in Japan for the Fall semester of 2019. I am honored and humbled to have this unique opportunity to study business and film making through the Freeman Grant. My hobby includes snowboarding and look forward to seeing the mountains tops of Japan. I also look forward to visiting some monasteries where I can learn firsthand from the buddhist monks about the rich history and culture of Japan.

Pursuing the opportunity to study abroad in Korea is something that I've dreamed about since my first year in college. I wish to explore and uncover anything and everything that I can while abroad to make the most out of this experience. Studying and school comes first, but that won't prevent me from going on as many adventures as possible.

Studying abroad will be one of the most beneficial experiences for me. Certainly, I will face challenges abroad in Hong Kong, but I hope to gain new experiences and broaden my global perspective, as well as make connections with local and international students.

Study and living in a place that I have never been to is definitely a challenge to me, but I am willing to take this as an opportunity to learn more about myself and to discover more possibilities. I am looking forward to explore another culture, living style, and language that is different from Hawaii. I hope to improve my networking and communication skills and expand my insights.

I can't wait to start my journey abroad in Korea. Studying abroad will provide me with a strong international network with future business leaders. The international education will prepare me for the "real-world" while I gain the ability to assist and support my peers with a global business mindset, after returning home. I hope to develop international business aspects that I can utilize for the community and personal succession with my future career.
