Hinako Kobashi


Hello, My name is Hinako Kobashi, and I am a Service Learning Student Leader (Square) for the Service Learning Institute (SLI). My site is Basic Needs. I am also a Japanese Tutor at the Cooperative Learning Center. I am an International student from Tokyo, Japan. It has been 5 years since I came to the U.S. by myself. This is my last semester at CSUMB as a Global Studies major and a Business minor.  Working at the SLI has enhanced my leadership skills, and strengthened my relationship with the CSUMB community. Some of my hobbies include traveling, hiking, paddle boarding, and going to beaches.
