Of these, Wakako Murosaki (66), who lives in Shodoshima, Kagawa Prefecture, has been blind since she was born, and on the 27th, she attended the graduation ceremony with her guide dog, Tabira, and received her diploma.
Mr. Murosaki worked as a masseuse in Shodoshima and entered the Open University of Japan in 2006 after being recommended by a friend.
When I had a lecture, I went to school with a guide dog by boat, and spent 14 years earning credits necessary for graduation, such as psychology and pedagogy.
Mr. Murosaki greeted as a graduate representative and said, “When I couldn’t study at home as I expected, I was very happy to call the university many times and kindly teach me. I can’t experience it at home and at work. I am grateful that I was able to meet a precious person at the Open University of Japan. “
After the graduation ceremony, Mr. Murosaki said, “I’m happy to graduate in 14 years, but I still have a desire to study.”
Mr. Murosaki will continue to study psychology at the Open University of Japan even after graduating.
