My Gilman experience was pretty undescribable. It’s something that I will keep for the rest of my life. The Gilman Scholarship is a scholarship that enables students to study abroad. It’s very competitive and it’s very prestigious. …And it essentially gives them an opportunity to experience a different country in its entirety. I think the biggest thing study abroad taught me is how to consider things from different points of view. This is really important in the workplace– –when you’re dealing with people and looking at ideas for new projects, or your own project… …and approaching it in a way that you can solve it effectively. We should study abroad because… …from a technological standpoint, from a cultural standpoint, from a societal standpoint– –understanding people on a local human level will minimize conflict that might occur in the future. I think there would be a lot of people in Korea that would be very interested… …and really happy to see westerners, or outsiders, come to Korea to learn about their culture– –in order to appreciate something that maybe doesn’t exist in the western world. We have a lot to learn from each other.
