Back to the States :(

My 7 weeks in Korea is over. Yesterday, I flew back and landed at JFK around 11:00am. Leaving my co-teachers and students was one of the hardest things I’ve had to do in my entire life. The past week has been a very emotional, but I am so blessed I met the people I did.

I don’t really know how I feel about being back in the states. I started to miss my family the last few days of the trip, but now that I’ve been home for a day I already want to go back. I loved everything about Korea and know I will someday return. If things are still as planned I will go back during winter break of my senior year to hopefully have a few job interviews for a teaching position the following fall after graduation. Normally I have a lot to write about, but this blog is different. I met some of the best people in the world and made so many amazing memories. I absolutely love all of my students and miss them immensely. All I can say is that studying abroad was the best decision I’ve ever made and I highly recommend everyone to do it.

Hi! My name is Andrea and I am currently a junior at SUNY New Paltz. My major is Early Childhood and Childhood Education with a concentration in English. I have always had an interest in traveling so I could not pass up the opportunity to study abroad! I was actually born in Korea, but adopted as a baby so I have never been and don't know too much about the Korean culture. I'm excited to learn as much as I can while having the time of my life!
