A student studying abroad with Korea University: Seoul - International Summer Campus
I personally had a lot of hesitation going into this experience. For so long, I have wanted to teach English in Korea, but when I hopped on my plane, I was afraid that it wasn't going to feel right living there. I was wrong.
