「私を変えたJポップグループ」/ "The J-Pop Group That Changed My Life" - My Japanese Speech About NEWS


On May 28, 2011, I got to participate in the 8th Annual Japanese Language Scholarship Foundation All-USA High School Japanese Speech Contest in Los Angeles. I wrote my speech about NEWS, what I love about them, how much they mean to me, how they helped me learned more Japanese, and how they impact me on pursuing my future dream of becoming an interpreter for entertainers.

In the end, I won the VIP Award. Although it's not like a winner or runner-up-like prize, just the fact that I got this wonderful award makes me very happy. Being able to participate in this speech contest and receiving the VIP Award feels like another step towards my future dream.


I’m extremely thankful for being a fan of NEWS and for their awesomeness for getting me this far. If I wasn’t a fan of them, I don’t think I would have been able to experience such a great event or even win this great award!

Hope you enjoy listening to my speech!! ;D
