Questionမေးခွန်းHow did you get interested in working in Japan?

I had been interested in working overseas. After hearing that the Japanese government added caregiving to the subjects for overseas technical interns, I found that Japan is a safe, convenient, and clean country on the Internet, and decided to attend a Japanese language school.


Questionမေးခွန်း How are the Japanese co-workers?

They always support my job, since when I first started to the present day. Even if I make a mistake, they patiently and kindly teach me what to do. I have also been able to make friends that treat me like family in my private time. I am always grateful for the kindness of my co-workers.


Questionမေးခွန်းDo you have any goals or dreams for the future?

My goal is to improve my Japanese skills and become a certified care worker. My dream is to live in Japan and obtain Japanese citizenship. If I cannot do that, I will return to my home country and teach what I learned in Japan as a caregiver teacher at a Japanese language school.

Questionမေးခွန်းWhy did you choose to work as a caregiver?

I had an interest in caregiving and thought I would like to learn about how Japanese people live long lives. I also thought I would be able to improve my Japanese because caregiving involves more talking than other jobs. I chose to be a caregiver because I thought I would be able to communicate with the users a lot.

I am happy to hear old stories from our users, play games together, and take walks while singing songs, which lets me see their smiling faces. I also feel at ease knowing that I can get help from my superiors at work if I face any difficulties.
