Aside from satisfying the International Experience requirement for my major of International Studies, it will allow me to experince Korean culture firsthand and obtain insight about a country that despite it's technological advancements, continues to hold its history and traditions close to heart. While I am here I will also being taking language classes and after studying Chinese at my home University for about three years now, it is exciting how much I will be able to grasp after on and off self teaching and how I can carry these skills with me into the workforce.
While I am still preparing for this trip while apply for scholarships and seeking out other means of income, if family or evens friends are willing to help cover needs that cannot be comprimised (for example: tuition, room and board, textbooks and airfare costs). So, if you are willing to help me on this journey then feel free to donate how ever much you see fit! Even if you can't, just the thought and small messages of safe travel is more than enough. Also as an incentive, lots of soveniers will be bought (family only for the timebeing! lol)
