My chapter of academic exchange in Korea has come to an end. Yesterday I came back home to Belarus with a lot of great memories. Throughout my time in Seoul I’ve built amazing friendships, ate good food, saw interesting places and learned loads of things about Korean culture. This experience was wonderful and priceless. If you have an opportunity to go on academic exchange (wherever it may be), I would definitely recommend taking it. Unlike normal, daily life at home, nearly every day in Korea was filled with events and emotions. I’ve met many people who shared their life stories with me, discovered cultural differences with them and with Korean people and got to study at a Korean university. I cannot thank my friends enough for the time we’ve spent together and all the fun we’ve had in Seoul. I doubt I’ll ever be able to forget all the life lessons I’ve learned in these four months and can easily say I’ve come out a new, more culturally and socially educated person. My gratitude goes to my family, friends and UoM for giving me this opportunity, I am very happy I chose to work hard and take it and will treasure these memories forever.
