World Youth KOKOROZASHI Presentation Competition
Executive Committee Chairperson
My name is Jun Koide, Chairperson of the 6th KOKOROZASHI Presentation Competition for Global Youth Executive Committee. We all have noble KOKOROZASHI deep in our hearts. What will you use your life for and how will you burn it in your one and only life? To decide on one's own course of life, one's major policy, is to "set KOKOROZASHI. This competition attracts wonderful presenters every year. What backgrounds led the 12 selected young presenters to set their KOKOROZASHI and take action? When I listen to them, I cannot help but be moved. Let's all become supporters of aspiring youth through this competition and create a world where everyone can live happily!
