My interest in Japan was firsted influenced by a friend who ran a Japanese language school back home in Inner Mongolia. That friend of mine had lived in Japan for more than ten years and often spoke to me about how appealing Japan is, saying "Japan is such a safe and easy country to live in" and "Japanese people are all so polite!" I became fascinated with Japan, and after I graduated from a university, came to Japan and started attending a Japanese language school.
The truth is, when I came to Japan I had no specific goal about what I wanted to study or what kind of job I wanted to do. I heard there was a school called Mode Gakuen from a Inner Mongolia friend who worked for a Japanese company. I had no idea what I could study there, but as I looked it up on the internet, and I began to remember my dream from the junior high school days. I used to love the idea of "making people cute and pretty" – as I had often done hair arrangements for my little sister. If I could get a job where I can do what I love, I would definitely work hard for it. If I had joined Mode Gakuen, it would surely make my dream of ten years come true. Feeling convinced, I decided to get enrolled.
"Mode Gakuen for studying fashion in Japan." I joined the school that a Japanese language school teacher introduced to me.

My mother has significant influence on my facination with Japan. My mother has travelled all over the world, and Japan was a country she talked to me about the most as "the best country she had ever visited." She told me that I should study in Japan, because it was one of the safest developed countries and has an Asian culture that is familiar to us. I went to Japanese language school in Malaysia, then decided to come study in Japan.
It was a teacher at Japanese language school that suggested Mode Gakuen to me. I was interested in Japanese fashion and girls’ culture – which suits my generation. I read a lot of women's fashion magazines such as “ViVi” and “with”. My teacher saw that and told me I should go to Mode Gakuen if I wanted to study fashion!
Trial enrollment at MODE GAKUEN reminded me of my childhood dream.
School Life at Mode Gakuen.
Though I had no experience in the field, I won the gold prize at school's contest.
My father worked at a trading company and was deeply involved with Japan. He told me a lot about Japan when I was a child, so I naturally became interested in Japan. I wanted to study extensively about Japan, so I went to a Russian university and majored in Japan studies. I came to Japan after graduation, looking for a job while studying at a Japanese language school. At first I was planning to be a translator/ interpreter, but soon I realized that was not what I wanted to do.
I was lost in finding what I wanted to do.
At that time, a friend of mine invited me to participate in Mode At that time, a friend of mine invited me to participate in Mode Gakuen’s trial enrollment.
I did not even know what you can study at Mode Gakuen. I visited with simple curiosity, ”I want to look what’s inside that awesome-looking building.” As I walked around the building and saw the school’s facilities, environment, and exhibited pieces of work by students at Interior Department, my almost-forgotten dream of “becoming an interior designer” from my childhood came back in my mind. I did not have knowledge about interior design, nor skills in drawing pictures or prototype designs. But driven by my inner voice saying “I want to do it”, I decided to join Mode Gakuen.
I wanted to get a job in Japan where fashion business is so advanced!

Italy/Fashion Business Dept.
I had a strong wish to work in fashion business field (planning, marketing,) and I wanted to study in a country where fashion business is advanced. Japan’s fashion industry has a very advanced production management and distribution systems compared to other countries. I was already studying Japanese language and culture at university because I liked Japanese movies, so Japan became my first choice. This is how I came to study fashion business in Japan.
My acquaintance once told me that Mode Gakuen was the most famous fashion school in Japan, so I checked out its web site. I found that the school had a lot of subjects that would surely help me in the future.
I visited the school myself, too. The buildings and facilities made me feel “I absolutely want to study here” even more. So I decided to join Mode Gakuen.
I acquired professional skills in the most advanced environment, with generous support from universities.
The notebook I designed at school went on sale in China.
I had overcome my weaknesses – formal Japanese, and found a job as a graphic desinger. The job of my dreams.
I always liked Japanese TV dramas and music, and was interested in the Japanese language so much that I studied it at school. Also, drawing was always my favorite thing to do since I was little, so I've come to want to work as a designer in Japan in the future. I entered a Japanese university to study design. But without enough support from the university, I was not able to keep on studying by myself. Most facilities and equipments were out-dated and I found it difficult to improving my designing skills. Then, I saw MODE GAKUEN's TV commercial. I felt fascinated and visited the campus. The building and the facilities looked excellent, and I thought I found myself the most advanced environment to study. I also liked the fact they give full support to the students, and thought that this is the best choice to grow myself to get the career I want. I immediately joined MODE GAKUEN.
I was concerned about being able to make friends at first because my classmates were of different ages, but we became friends very soon. All of them were very caring, talking to me, and very cheerful. Though I come from a different country and of different age, they warmly accepted me. I too became very cheerful, and really enjoyed school life every day.
My dream is to be a graphic designer!

Dominican Republic/Graphics Dept.
I saw a television commercial and thought, "I want to study graphic design here." I was reassured because Mode Gakuen also has many international students and it had an international feel to it. My parents also encouraged me.
Sometimes difficult Japanese was used in the classes but my Japanese classmates helped me by teaching it to me. My dream is to have my own brand as a graphic designer. I would like to spread how cool Japanese culture is to the United States by making t-shirts using graphic design.
