Just some Wanna-be Koreans trying to make it in Korea for two-weeks

From wearing traditional clothing, to recieving our diplomas, CIEE and the Korea Foundation took wonderful care of us. I mean seriously... we had a feast at every meal. And I can't forget the homestay.. one of the highlights of the program. From meeting my host sister, feeling sad because of the language barrier between me and my host mom... to staying up until 3 in the morning to watch the Korea V. Japan Olympic Soccer game (KOREA WON!!) I'll never forget that experience.

Seoulful memories

I STRONGLY encourage everyone to apply to this scholarship. I went this past August and it was the best two weeks of my life. I can't find the words to accurately describe the experiences I had, so I'll simply put that it was amazing. I was so blown away at how advanced South Korea is. It definitely beat my expectations. I was genuinely surprised, too, because I never saw myself going to Asia, much less South Korea.. but there I was in South Korea. And now I can say that it's a country that I've come to love, and one that I'm definitely going to visit again. This program is ran by great people. You have nothing to lose by applying, you only have a whole new culture to embrace.
