Workaholic Keita Inui moved to Australia for two reasons; he promised his Australian wife, whom he met and married in Osaka, that they would one day live in her hometown, Sydney, and he also wanted to study again. His prior image of the West, modernity and advanced civility, sharply contradicted his experience of racism in his early days in Sydney. Believing that the best way to master English was to engage with local people through work, he embarked on learning animal technology at TAFE some years ago, and he is now working as an animal technician at theUniversity of New South Wales
. He is currently studying International business and Chinese at the same university. In this interview video, Keita shares with us the process of becoming qualified as an animal technician, his work experience in Sydney, and his intercultural marriage and family.
