Seoul National University, Korea


Hello everyone ๐Ÿ™‚

My name is Gina, and Iโ€™m currently in my second year of a Global Studies and Music conjoint degree. I look forward to sharing my experiences and adventures during my semester abroad at Seoul National University in Seoul, South Korea!

Going on exchange has been a long-held dream of mine, and I perceive this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to prove an unforgettable experience that will help me gain the courage to grow as an individual. I was born in Aotearoa, New Zealand, to a Chinese father and a Korean mother, and grew up speaking five languages. I am also a classical pianist who has been playing the piano since the age of five โ€” thus, I am majoring in classical piano performance for my music degree. Additionally, I am deeply passionate about cultural diversity and the way it revolves around intercultural communication.

Nevertheless, I am beyond excited to explore South Koreaโ€™s vibrant culture, expand my human network, immerse myself in my exchange student life, and experience an entirely new way of life in Seoul.

Do join me for the ride!
