Summer Korean Studies Seoul, South Korea
Hometown: Richmond, California

Tara Zhou is a university business student on the brink of graduation. With that prospect in unfolding, she wishes to begin cherishing each increment of time studying abroad in Seoul as one day, each bus ride, rained-in steamy day, corner prop store, and delightful cafe will become a reminist memory. As she experiences a multitude of firsts during her time here this summer, recording the micro-experiences and small nuances of each first will be her attempt to value time more, as she wishes to place more emphasis on the journey as opposed to the overall outcome. Accompany her along this trek through each date she takes herself on, newfound bakery, or whatever else she happens to stumble upon!
