We are SPA!
Students' Website FAFA (For APU Students, From APU Students) aims to deliver topical information about APU from the point of view of APU Student PR Assistants (SPA). As the title suggests, the information provided on this page is for APU students, by APU students. This page hopes to provide information that will help students in their daily campus life and will put the spotlight on active students and faculty members. Each item on this page has been planned and written primarily by members of SPA to provide students with relevant and timely information. We hope that this site helps you to lead an even more fulfilling student life with a deeper understanding and love of APU.

2.APM (International Management)
Hello! I’m Mao from Japan. I love to listen western music such as EDM and pop so much! In particular, LANY, Chelsea Cutler, and Gryffin are my favorite artists. Currently I practice acoustic guitar on my free time because its sound comforts me. Recently I’ve been studying for job hunting. I started subscribing to newspapers to get updated economic information, and am enjoying reading newspapers these days.
My name is Hanako, from Tokyo. I am an APM student focusing on marketing. My hobby is eating delicious food. I also love to travel and take pictures, but I do these so I can eat delicious food!
My goal for 2020 is to be a Beppu master. I am planning to make a list of the shops I want to see, and I want to visit all of them. The thing I really love about Beppu is there is always a fusion of the traditional and the modern. I am looking forward
How is everyone doing? I’m Myze (pronounced like "Mie" with a “z”), a Vietnamese 2nd year (4th semester) APS student, focusing on culture, society, and media. I love binge watching crime documentaries on Netflix, but there’s also the other side of me which just loves The Try Guys so bad! During quarantine I’ve tried many things that I thought I would never get into: Working out, playing guitar, and more. I hope this odd personality of mine can
2.APS (Culture, society, media)
Hello! My name is Amara Zahra Djamil from Indonesia, or simply known as Amara. I enjoy watching dramas on Netflix, reading, and traveling whenever I have the chance! Writing has always been an interest of mine as well. I like documenting my experiences and sharing them with other people. I hope to share interesting stories and meet creative people through this organization.
My favorite part of being a member of SPA is interacting with students and professors who I normally wouldn't talk to and listening to their interesting life stories. If you have an interesting story at APU, you can always tell me.
I’m Linh from Vietnam. I have a weird hobby: I love watching ads (but I hate pop-up ads on YouTube). In my free time, I like to read, write, and cook with friends. I love writing, as I want my ideas to be shared and heard by more people. During this quarantine, I wallow in sorrow through reading Haruki Murakami’s books by day and recover by watching TikTok by night. I wish you all safety and health amidst this pandemic.
Hi. I’m Maasa from Japan. I was born and raised in Nara, and lived in the states for 2 and a half years when I was in high school. I spend my weekend watching movies, going to onsen, and enjoying outdoor activities. Climbing Mt. Yufu last year was one of my favorite outdoor activities in Oita. My next challenge is to make it to the top of Mt. Kuju. As members of SPA, we want to spread more fun information from diversified standpoints, so please che
Hello! I’m Shasta from Nepal. I am currently addicted to watching ‘Bon Appetite’ videos on YouTube. I also enjoy watching movies, reading, and baking dessert in my free time. I have been trying to write consistently again. That is probably why I applied to be in SPA. I was drawn towards this organization because I like meeting people who have interesting ideas and perspectives on life.
2.APS (International relations)
I’m Nagisa Sakamoto, 4th grade 7semster student. I am an APS student focusing on international relations, and I am taking media journalism seminar. I like onsen in the Kannawa area of Beppu, and I decided to live there. I am enjoying life, being able to get anywhere in Beppu on my motor bike. I will upload new articles about my favorite spots. I hope you will be able to enjoy your Beppu life once the current situation has improv
