Hi guys! Thank you so much for your questions about studying abroad in Seoul. My year at Yonsei was honestly the best year of my life and put me on the path that I’m on right now. I made some of my best friends during this time and completely changed my life plan. I’m so so thankful for the program I used (CIEE) and I hope that this video can help you get yourself there and make it all happen too! You might not have a perfect time in Korea, but I promise you will not come back to your home country the same person you were when you left!
