Mitsuki is originally from Japan and experienced a number of short study abroad programs in Australia, Belgium, USA and Germany when she was a student.

Growing up, Mitsuki always dreamed of exploring the world and learning other languages fluently. When she was 21, she moved to the Sunshine Coast in Australia to make her dream come true. She studied Certificate IV in Health and Beauty to improve her English level and also get a qualification for a better career, however she ended up working as an Administration officer at the University of the Sunshine Coast. Mitsuki Experienced broad areas of Student Administration work during her employment with the university for 7 years. 

In 2013, she had an opportunity to move to Port Moresby, PNG and established an Education Agency (PEACS) in 2015 to help Papua New Guineans to study abroad. Mitsuki actively collaborates with government agencies, schools and institutions to enhance the study abroad pathways for Papua New Guineans.

In 2018, Mitsuki participated for Agent Pitch Challenge Study Queensland during Commonwealth Game Gold Coast Trade 2018 event, and selected as a winner of the pitch. She has given a fund by Queensland Government to implement her idea of creating information resources for PNG parents such as e-guidebook and video, traveled around PNG to assist parents face-to-face. Same year, PEACS has re-branded as PNG Study Abroad and Mitsuki expanded study abroad option to Japan, Grenada, Malaysia and New Zealand. 

It is Mitsuki's mission to provide the best study abroad journey to many students in Papua New Guinea. She believes that study abroad is a life changing experience and also an opportunity to grow and reconnect with our true identity of who we are.

Agent Pitch Challenge

The Study Queensland Agent Pitch Challenge 2018 was a great  opportunity for international agents to pitch their most creative and innovative student recruitment campaign to take Study Queensland to the world. 

The Agent Pitch initiative is part of the Trade 2018 Games, Trade and Investment Program, a state-wide program, providing an opportunity for government and business leaders to meet, build new relationships, strengthen trade and investment ties and explore opportunities across the Commonwealth and beyond.

PEACS (now PNG Study Abroad) was selected as one of five finalists and presented final pitch on 12th April at Commonwealth House, Gold Coast. 

Managing Director of PEACS, Mitsuki shared her idea of building "Wantok" relationship between Queensland and PNG, visiting key cities of PNG and providing tailored information for PNG parents who are considering to send their children to Queensland for an education. 


Mitsuki explained that even though Queensland is already a most popular study destination for PNG students, there is no customised support for the students and parents available. This campaign will be a great initiation to set a foundation up, so that more PNG students will have an opportunity to come to Queensland for a quality education and experience.

Mitsuki inspired judges and audiences with her passion of helping Papua New Guineans, PEACS has selected as a winner of the pitch. 

She successfully completed an Education Roadshow in October 2018 starting from Port Moresby and continued on to Kokopo, Mt Hagen and Lae.
