Hello my name is Courtney Lejis and I am currently a university student majoring in journalism. I am very happy to share that I have been accepted to study abroad in South Korea and I am very grateful for this opportunity to learn more about a culture other than my own. In addition, I am very excited at the prospect of not only experiencing life in a new country, but also for this once in a lifetime opportunity to learn a new language abroad. I hope to take this chance to not only travel and see more of the world than what I have seen, but also to step out of my comfort zone and explore all that this country has to offer. Although I do have financial aid to help finance my studies abroad, I have recently found out that it unfortunately will not cover all of the cost of attending my host university for the year long program. Similarly, I will not have enough to cover necessities like food, transportation, and other essential items once I am there like I had hoped. Please help me fund this amazing journey! I thank you all in advance for any help you may be able to offer.
