Japanese native Kumiko Saito now lives and works in Beavercreek, Ohio, where she is the Senior Administrative Assistant for the Foreign Multinational Corporates Group in JPMorgan Chase, North America.
She attended OPIE in 1998. Once she successfully completed her English studies, Ms. Saito earned a Bacheler’s Degree in Communications and a Master’s Degree in Sports Administration and Facility Management, both from Ohio University.
Ms. Saito remembers that OPIE was very helpful because of the writing skills and vocabulary she acquired from classes. Additionally, she greatly “enjoyed meeting with students from other countries and learning [about] their culture.” In fact, she still communicates with friends that she met over 17 years ago while an OPIE student.
