Yuriko Sato (she/her/hers)
Position title: International Student Services Assistant
Hello! My name is Yuriko, and I serve an International Student Services Assistant. I am from Japan and am a current graduate student in the ELPA Global Higher Education Master’s program. Prior to my graduate studies, I have studied and worked abroad in Canada, China, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, and the U.S., and I speak Japanese, English, and some basic Mandarin Chinese and Indonesian. I have a commitment and appreciation for diversity and intercultural education. As an international student myself, I am also passionate about providing opportunities for international students to discuss the aspects of their background or experience that would enrich the diversity of campus and Madison community. My interests include learning different languages and traveling (Travelled to Mexico, Colombia, Brazil, Malaysia, Vietnam, Thailand, Korea, and many cities in China, for pleasure). I took Japanese Calligraphy lessons for 9 years and have 8th dan. I’m looking forward to working with you!
