Jasmine White '18

Jasmine is a senior in the College majoring in English and minoring in Korean. She spent the Fall 2016 semester studying abroad in Seoul, South Korea at Yonsei University. During her time Jasmine Whiteabroad, Jasmine took a variety of courses on contemporary Korean history, politics, and culture as well as an intensive Korean language course that met five times a week. In addition to academics, Jasmine had many chances to engage in cultural exchange with the locals through opportunities such as volunteering once a week at a senior citizen's recreation center to teach English and attending the Busan International Film Festival, one of the largest film festivals in Asia.

On weekends, Jasmine enjoyed getting some much needed Korean language practice by bargaining with shop keepers at one of Seoul's many markets and also taking late night walks through the bustling streets to watch different musicians busk and to eat cheap street food.

As a peer advisor, she is excited to share her experience with prospective study abroad students and hopes that, by doing so, she will encourage them to not pass up what is sure to be one of the most unforgettable experiences of their lives.
