During her 6-month stay in Japan as a Council on Foreign Relations Fellow, Asia 21 Fellow Alexandra Harney was delighted to have the support from her fellow Asia 21 young leaders in Japan who made sure that she felt at home. Gen Kanai, Claire Chino, and Daisuke Kan were incredibly helpful to her and Daisuke, in particular, went the extra 10 miles to connect Alexandra to interesting people in Tokyo, including both family, and friends. “Daisuke opened the doors to his world—full of creative, inspiring people trying to make Japan and the world a better place. He transformed my six months in Japan, and for that, I am extremely grateful to Daisuke, and to Asia 21” she says.
