Mr. Hosoda spoke to the audience that the Great East Japan Earthquake became one of the main reasons he chose to enroll in graduate school at Tokyo Tech and that he learned many things at ToTAL, especially through interaction with fellow study abroad students.
At the end of the session, he concluded that he wants to "shine a light on people who may become forgotten or "slip through" in history, like sand slipping through your fingers, and make a world where those people can realize that the world is not as bad as they think it is."
