Austin Charles knew he wanted to be on the other side of an ocean someday. The question was, which one? A summer semester in Oxford, England, and an internship with the European Parliament in Brussels, Belgium, sealed the deal—for the Pacific.

“I really enjoyed my time in Europe, but I realized my true interest in my heart was more in Asia,” Charles says.

A longtime practitioner of wing chun kung fu and yoga, Charles found himself more and more drawn to the culture’s focus on introspection and “mindfully moving through the world” after school trips to China and Japan. Set to enter Georgia State University College of Law in the fall, Charles hopes to “integrate” himself into law practice involving Japan.
