Lindsey W.

Summer Korean Studies Seoul, South Korea
Hometown: Gainesville, Georgia

What was once a dream of mine is now a reality. Hard work, determination, and ambition have finally brought me to what I once could only imagine. Now—no longer. My name is Lindsey Ward and I am an East Asian Studies major at the University of North Georgia. How will I be spending my summer? I will be studying at Yonsei University in Seoul, the heart of South Korea. I am not only going on a journey to expand and contribute to my education, but I am also expanding and contributing to my character. The journey will not be all rainbows and sunshine as many challenges will be met. However, what matters is hope, perseverance, and the ability to believe in oneself to achieve the impossible. 

A few things about the author:

  • Lindsey will be working with Kohl's in their management program in early 2023. 
  • Lindsey aspires to work with others and for their human rights. 
  • She hopes to learn the languages of her community, such as Spanish, Korean, and ASL.
