Jashon Strickland attended a two week service learning and cultural exchange trip to Japan during the summer of 2015. During the trip he was able to visit cultural and historical sites in the Tokyo and the Tohoku region of Japan. He met with Japanese students for a day of cultural exchange and facilitated a workshop with another Japanese non-profit organization to discuss issues that take place in each of their own societies. During his five-day stay in the Tohoku region, he created a power point project on the earthquake and tsunami that occurred in that specific area and presented it at the University of Tokyo where it was filmed and broadcast on a Japanese television station. The purpose of the project was to create strategies on how to spread the awareness of the natural disasters that occurred in that region of the world.
