My favorite part of this program was the students. Their drive to learn is amazing and they are the sweetest, most friendly girls I have ever met. Even though the program was only 6 weeks long, I was able to form strong relationships with many of them and it was really hard to have to leave them. I miss them all so much.

The most rewarding part of the program was undoubtedly the interactions with the students at Kyunghwa. It's an environment unlike anything other. The girls are all passionate and sweet; it was so different than any other school environment I'd ever been in. The support network is also really strong, not just with our KU peers but the teachers at the school are all so willing to help and make the experience a great one. I really feel like I connected with the community at Kyunghwa and even down in the town of Gwangju.

Teaching the girls was definitely the most rewarding thing on this trip. They were all so kind and willing to learn and I miss them so much. They would spoil any teacher who came in to teach them, as compared to America, at least. Learning how to make a lesson plan, then actually making it and implementing it was a super cool experience that I would have never gotten with the field I'm going into. Overall, this entire experience was rewarding, be it the girls, the excursions, or the classes, and I am honestly so lucky to have been able to go on this trip.
