Comment from Sonoda

Although I am a little nervous as it is first time for me to represent Japan, I will enjoy the challenge in the world stage without forgetting how proud and grateful I am to be able to participate. I will do my best to prepare until the day to give my best performance. I would like to give a good report to everyone at my company and people who always give me a lot of support.

I will do everything I can do in the competition without giving up until the end. Thank you very much for your support.
