Hiroshi Motoyama Visit

Mr. Hiroshi Motoyama, President & CEO of Mizuho Securities Co., Ltd. generously visited Showa Boston earlier this month and gave a talk to students. His presentation was titled 21世紀を生きる君たちへ, or “To Those Who Will Live The 21st Century.” This talk was a fantastic opportunity to hear about, not to mention ask about, the employment world that they will enter within the next few years.

Volunteering at Community Servings

First, I went to orientation. It was scary. There were about 6 other people at the orientation. The manager showed about knife safety and hand washing. Hand washing is very important as it stops the spread of germs. After orientation we could sign up to volunteer.

Community Servings is near Showa. It is a very clean and it is mostly a kitchen. Before we can volunteer we must wear a hair net. Then we wash our hands, wear apron and last we put on gloves. We made bags of cornflakes and raisin bran. We scooped them into bags and tied them.

We made 6 big boxes of cereal bags. Then I sorted and cut tomato for salad. Another volunteer group was from Bank Of America. They packed desserts first and then packed bags with meals for a week to be delivered to sick people. I liked preparing food. I felt helpful.
