David Vanier, a recent graduate in Biological Anthropology with honors in Asian Studies, will leave for a year-long stay in Japan starting in late July to teach English through the Japanese Exchange and Teaching Programme. He will be an assistant language teacher, working in conjunction with Japanese teachers of English in local schools. Candidates for this program, run by the Japanese Ministry of Education, are selected through a rigorous six month application process which includes an interview at the Japanese Embassy. David plans to apply to medical school and eventually go into primary care medicine upon his return to the U.S.
