Hi! My name is Joyce Walpole and I studied abroad in Seoul, South Korea. I studied abroad my freshman summer at EWHA University’s international summer program because I wanted the chance to meet different people from all over the world with unique backgrounds. I chose South Korea because I’ve always wanted to visit there and learn more about their culture. I studied language and history while abroad and while I could’ve taken similar classes at UF, being able to actually visit the places I was learning about and use my language skills outside of the classroom every day made what I was learning much more memorable and exciting. I got to experience things I’d never be able to in America and learned more about myself during it all.
