I decided to participate in this project just because I was interested in the medical field. However, while I thought out solutions, I realized that even high school students with no medical knowledge could save someone's life, and I tackled the problems with all my might, which was unimaginable when I first joined the project. More than anything, in the inochi Mirai Forum, I was really impressed to meet students who desire to change the society. Even after the program, the presentation skills and problem-solving process that I learned during the project are still very useful in my high school life. With the support of mentors and many people from companies and the general public, you can make great friends and gain a lot of experiences that you couldn't have as an ordinary high school student. I believe this project will be a fulfilling experience for junior and senior high school students whether or not they are interested in medical field.
I participated in i-GIP KANSAI 2016 when I was a freshman of high school. Last year, I was involved as a sub-mentor in the i-GIP held in KANTO for the first time, and in 2020, I worked a little as an Overseas Director.
When I participated in 'inochi' as a first-year high school student, I had my heart set on entering a medical school in Japan and eventually becoming a clinical doctor. However, I changed my mind completely after I joined in this project.
I admired professors who are involved in medicine in various ways and are active on the front lines, as well as university student mentors who have already taken on the challenge of solving medical issues. I came to strongly think that I would like to be able to bring about medical innovation not from a clinical perspective, but from an engineering and technology science perspective. Since then, I began to consider going to a university in the U.S., where a lot of research are actively done on medical applications of engineering such as bioengineering. Fortunately, I was able to enter one.
All those things roots in the experiences of taking part in 'inochi', greeting and being inspired by many people.

It is not easy to realize a plan from scrach with no knowledge. You need to take the initiative and take action. However, the hard work will lead to your own growth and contribution to society. In addition, I made precious friends with the other participants in our friendly rivalry relationship. We not only had casual conversations but also passionately discussed about our respective dreams and the future we want to create .
My worldview completely changed when I got serious about solving health care issues. The theme of the year I joined was suicide. Whenever we encountered difficulties, we returned to the issues we had found based on interviews and evidence, and continued to challenge the unanswerable questions of how to reduce suicide and how to make life easier for people.
After participating in 'inochi', my desire to learn about life, death, and human life was strengthened, and I wanted to be like the university students at medical schools who always gave me advice and guidance. There is a world waiting for you, a world that can only be seen by those who have run through five months with the desire to save lives!

The inochi Gakusei Innovators' Program is seriously aiming to change the world in the healthcare field. Therefore, with the great support of experts and university students, a full educational program was prepared about design thinking, how to implement ideas, and even how to make presentations. As a result, we high school students were able to engage in activities such as company negotiations and interviews, which helped us grow greatly.
After entering the university, I was involved in the management of the organization. The management skills were as good as those of professionals, and I could not believe that it was a student organization. Experiences on the management side inspired and helped me in my later activities. It is not an exaggeration to say that I am now able to receive awards in other projects and conduct research on AI thanks to this organization.
It's true this is a tough contest that requires a high level of execution, but at the same time, it's an attractive and interesting place to learn about stepping out into the world. Please don't miss out on this great opportunity.
