Term: Summer 2017

Scholarship: Roy L. Furman ’60 Furman Fellows Program Travel Stipend

Major: Biology

“This summer I went to South Korea with Brooklyn College’s Media Production and Cultural Studies in South Korea program and it was such an unforgettable trip! Living in Korea for a month allowed me to really hone my Korean language skills and my confidence in speaking another language. I was also able to boost my communication skills in English, as I had to create a documentary with some of my fellow Brooklyn College students. Luckily, I was able to relate my project to my goal of becoming a dentist, and created a film highlighting the importance of dental health and insurance. I know that does not sound half as fun as the other things South Korea has to offer, but it was! The entire trip was educative and encouraged my creativity in a way that regular classes have never been able to. Every day was as exhilarating as the last and I can’t wait to go again!”
