Kobi has just graduated from Japan College of Social Work with a degree in Welfare. An avid traveller, Kobi has spent time in Indonesia, France, the Philippines, and Fiji and always prefers to travel off the beaten path, experiencing and interacting with locals, rather than fellow tourists. Kobi is currently involved in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) consulting for a small public relations firm that is working on the Tohoku revival efforts. Kobi believes in open communication and creating environments that facilitate and enable this: "(translated) Whenever you are doing a project, the most important thing is being able to speak with others what is on your mind. Skills and experiences can be altered, but having an environment where everyone can have their own voices heard is invaluable." While in Seattle, Kobi hopes to have a better understanding of the different types of leadership that people have wanted throughout history. He is excited to be a part of the iLEAP SIIS TOMODACHI program and also hopes to learn how to develop his ability to empathize with others and motivate people, especially during the early stages of a project.
