Rui Miura

My name is Rui Miura, and I am a junior studying economics at Keio University. I am studying at Brandeis University for the Fall 2022 and Spring 2023 semesters as an exchange student. At Brandeis University, I am immersing myself in Environmental Studies courses, where I am exploring the complex and fascinating issues of international politics of environmental issues. I like to spend my free time watching movies with my friends. My favorite movie is "Wolf Children."
