My First Home in Japan
I go back to Miyazaki International College, and it feels like going back home, where friends who have remained friends, where the family that has been growing up and aspirations grow along with it, and where the real experience that shaped the way of life. Having the honor of standing among you again brings back the effect of the beautiful warm times, the promising sunrise and the successive chapters that refine man. I take myself back as a student again, because what I have learned in this place never ends.
Dear friends, colleagues, students and professors,
When I returned back to Japan as the Ambassador of my country the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, it was like going back home to finish my work I'm passionate about, to refine and test what I have learned under this roof, and what this place taught me about the culture and history of your great people. I hope and seek to hold hands and develop our cooperation to inspire more of our peoples together, to apply their creative ideas and turn them into a reality that people across our continent where we live, as it started twenty years ago, here among you, small, honest and full of faith.
The relations of our two countries become more profound and solid, and more dependent on the future of man, his prosperity, his sciences and his culture, than it has ever been. Its main factor is institutions like this university, as well as the men and women who possess the seed of giving, tolerance and creativity, making the impossible possible, and creativity renewable never affected by the years.
宮崎国際大学在学中に宮崎で過ごした時間は、宮崎の穏やかな人々に囲まれ、大都会の喧騒の中では得られないであろう集中を得ることが出来、その日々は"Vacation to study"であったと話してくださいました。
"I think mastering the details of whatever you want to do will pay back, even if you are not good at planning.
Sometimes we find the community, family or school pushing us to decide what we want to do, and that's fine. But really mastering the moment and understanding yourself, getting into your skin will polish you and will make the opportunity to see you clearly, and I think that's the only thing I want to say."
