And the story continues…
After finishing my bachelor’s degree, I advanced to graduate school in 2011. In fact, I went abroad for my graduate studies, thinking it would be advantageous in the age of globalization. My destination? Yonsei University in Seoul, South Korea. With South Korea’s growing presence in the global economy and the North Korea issue, I thought it was an ideal choice and place, especially if I wanted to pursue an international relations or history career. Graduate life started and I made many new friends and acquaintances, hailing from all around the world: Colombia, Kazakhstan, Holland, China, Taiwan, Thailand, Canada, Delaware, etc. What made things even more interesting was that a number of the people I met in South Korea are acquainted with people whom I either went to college with or met at conferences previously. What a small world!
