What I love about YS: I love to meet new people who are happy to share a passion for intercultural communication across cultures!

One of my amazing travel/intercultural experiencesI could make friends regardless of my age. Nobody cares about my age when I was staying in the UK and Germany. Korean society still adheres to individual's roles and responsibilities depending on 'how old you are'. Thanks for exploring different culture, I could be brave and focus more on myself.
