It was my first time to Korea. It became one of my best experiences in my life. I made a lot of friends and learned about Korean culture as well as how to be a global leader. Now, I have lots of friends from Vietnam, Korea, Brazil, India, Philippines, Myanmar, Cambodia, Pakistan and China. I hope and believe our friendship will last forever.
