Hello, I'm Yuta Shibuya. I'm currently in Hokkai Gakuen University, studying English and humanities. I'm from a small town in Japan. When I was a child, I never used English, and I though I would never use English in the future. So, I couldn't speak English at all until I graduated from a high school, but I decided to study English in University because I really wanted to communicate with poeple from abroad, and I wanted to know many people's ideas and the thoughts. Also, I wanted to share my idea as well. Studying English was the best idea because it is a lingua franca, so many people speak the language. Now, I can use English to spread my idea and know other ideas from many people abroad. I strongly believe that English can broaden your world and become international. TEDx gave me the oppotunity to know great ideas and spread my idea. Now, as a student in Hokkai Gakuen, I want to spread that how important that you use English, and how important that you know so many people have great ideas. Most importantly, TEDx gives us great oppotunities to spread those ideas. So, I'm very honered to be a member of TEDx community and I'll do my best to contribute to this community.
Reading books. Playing tennis. Education. English. Linguistics.
Creating ideas and listening to people's ideas without having any bias. Many people miss and discard many great ideas because they have bias. Thingking without any prejudice is very important when you are coming up with ideas and consider those ideas with objectivery. Another idea is I want to spread is that many people should know that many people are desparate to study and make living. Fourtunately, I'm living in Japan and I have no trouble in education and I can do what I want. So, I'm forgetting that kind of feeling and I think many people are too. So, I want remind me and myself that I have to do what I can do at this moment and live like there is no tomorrow.
Movies, books, sports(especially tennis) linguistics.
I'm good at playing tennis. I have been palying tennis for about 6 years.
The organizer from TEDx Sapporo introduced TED and TEDEd to my University and I was very inspired by TEDx and his idea. Thinking back, I had always been looking for that kind of oppotunity. Since I have learned English, I wanted to use that ability to contribute other people. TEDx gave me that oppotunity and here I am.
