"The Study Away program had such a personal and professional impact on me. It was an unforgettable experience that I still love to talk about, as I made so many memories and lifelong friends during that trip. Visiting South Korea opened my eyes to a whole new world. Now, I firmly believe nothing beats the experience of completely immersing yourself into another culture.
I'd always dreamed of visiting South Korea, as that's where my grandmother is from, and I was welcomed by amazing food, people, and endless entertainment. It seemed nerve racking at first since it was my first time traveling outside the country, but it was so worth it! I got to see how South Koreans view fashion from their viewpoint and witness the professional differences in how they approach work. The two months I spent in South Korea has left a lasting impression on me, and it was nothing short of amazing!"
