Belmont students Dianna Antenucci and Kyle Jeffrey have been accepted to the prestigious and highly competitive Japan Exchange Teaching (JET) program for the 2013-2014 academic year.
Antenucci is a music business major graduating this May. She moved to Nashville from Toms River, N.J. to attend Belmont. She has worked her way through four years of college and had the opportunity to intern with an artist management company, a publishing company and a social media marketing company. Going on the Maymester trip to Japan in 2012 was a life altering experience that stirred a desire in her to experience the culture more and develop lasting relationships with the Japanese people.
Kyle Jeffrey spent a few months in Japan last summer to improve his Japanese language skills. He is excited to be returning to Japan on JET program and to become a bridge between the two cultures.
It is exciting news as Belmont University continues to strengthen its collaboration with Consulate General of Japan in Nashville and friendship with Japan led by Dr. Ronnie Littlejohn, as well as several faculty members involved in Asian Studies Program.
