“Being an active participant in the East-West Center community has helped me to build on my existing skills, deepen my understanding of the various cultures in the Asia Pacific region and introduced me to global and local issues and trends that are facing the region. I humbly thank the donors to the East-West Center Alumni Scholarship for providing me with this life enriching experience.” – Erika Enomoto

Vital financial support was provided by the EWC Association Alumni Scholarship for Erika to complete her studies as a MA degree fellow in art history and graduate certificate in museum studies.
