|Han Ziuxuan, International Student|
Q1. Please introduce yourself.
Hello, my name is Han Zixuan, and you can call me Jennifer. I am a 23-year-old Chinese student majoring in Business Administration at Sungkyunkwan University (SKKU). I believe I am a person who is outgoing and has a good sense of humor. Also, I have devoted myself to dancing during my spare time at Korea.
Q2. Why did you choose Korea?
It all began when I gained an interest for Korean culture, including the wave of K-pop to Korean movies. When I was in junior high, I watched a Korean television series for the first time, and it aroused my curiosity about Korea. As I wanted to go beyond my usual boundaries, this curiosity became a dream to visit Korea. Three years have passed since I have come to Korea. The best part about my life in Seoul so far is that I can taste delicious Korean food everywhere.
Q3. Why did you choose SKKU?
SKKU is located on a busy street in Seoul. The campus is excellent in that I can feel the cultural atmosphere brought by a higher education institution. Moreover, SKKU is one of the best universities in the world, both in terms of educational quality and its faculty. Therefore, I chose to take the language classes at SKKU first. Many students in our class came from different countries, which allowed me to make many international friends. The class atmosphere was very relaxed and comfortable, and the professors seemed to have many years of teaching experience. Through cultural experience with our classmates, I have gained a deeper understanding of Korea, as well as SKKU.
Q4. How is your life at SKKU?
I was lucky enough to be accepted to SKKU in 2020, which was my dream school. Since then, I have made a lot of Korean friends over the years. Our different cultures and nationalities have not become an obstacle to our friendship. I have also learned about Korean culture, and the values and outlook on life Koreans tend to have. Furthermore, sincere communication and talking to my Korean friends have not only forged a deep friendship between us, but my Korean has also improved dramatically. Every class I have attended has been delightful as well. Conversing with the professors has helped me gain types of knowledge that cannot be found in books. Overall, my time in Korea has, so far, been a priceless experience.
