by Mr. Akiyoshi Yamaguchi

Introduction
 
My name is Akiyoshi Yamaguchi, Japanese. I am enrolled in the Asia Leaders Programme (ALP). It is a Dual campus Master of Arts (MA) Program of The United Nations-mandated University for Peace. As the last academic requirement of MA program, I was required to do the internship in Asian country for 14 weeks.
 
Then, I decided to work as an intern of The Philippine Partnership for the Development of Human Resources in Rural Areas (PhilDHRRA), at Luzon Office, from June to September, 2012. This internship opportunity could help me to have the ground-level experiences of my major, Environmental Security and Peace.
