Michelle Gin
Biker & Citizen-Ambassador
I try to share with others the perspective that we are all global citizens, not merely citizens of the U.S., China, South Africa, etc. and that we all share the same environment. I would like to be a part of the IPPNW Bike Tour Japan to help me grow professionally, academically, and personally. The bike tour would allow me to learn from my peers from around the world so I could bring back home various perspectives. I have never traveled to Japan and would love to learn more about the culture as well as the attitudes from my peers from around the world toward U.S.'s nuclear proliferation. I hope to be a part of a global network of the next generation of movers and shakers.
