About me:

Megumi Nishikura is a peace and media activist currently on the Rotary World Peace Fellowship pursuing a master’s degree in Peace and Conflict Studies from the International Christian University in Tokyo, Japan. Her undergraduate degree is in Film Production from New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts in 2002. Born to a Japanese father and an American mother, she attributes her desire for peace to her multi-cultural background and international upbringing. Her desire is to combine her two passions- peace and media- to tell stories that bring awareness to humanity’s most pressing issues and shed light on individuals and organizations working to solve them.

I'm passionate about:

Peace and conflict, human rights, development, the environment, our global issues.
