In the morning we listened to a lecture by actress Nakanisi Miho who was invited as the special guest lecturer. Nakanisi Miho, who has received attention for her most recent drama, explained about her process of becoming an actress and spoke about the importance of having a dream. Through overcoming her parents’ opposition and a period of obscurity, she faced many hardships prior to becoming successful, however gained joy when her dream was accomplished. She told the students to never give up on their dreams.
The following program was an African acapella performance by the Gracias Choir. The IYF students responded enthusiastically to the first Swahili song they ever heard, and even some Japanese students who at first were not used to the performance, gradually began to enjoy the performance and were happy.
