Ranna Jarukin

Having grown up in Japan, Ranna Jarukin, BX Alumna from the 2021 cohort, treasured the opportunity to study abroad in Shanghai. “It was incredibly rewarding to meet and work alongside my Chinese classmates as well as fellow scholars from different backgrounds – something I did not have a chance to do much of before studying abroad,” she says. “Not only did I discover the value of mutual understanding, teamwork, and creativity, I was also inspired to broaden my career horizons. I used to only imagine myself working in Japan after graduation, but now, I am considering a wider range of career options and the possibility of working in Mainland China, other countries in Asia, or even the rest of the world.”
