Hey everyone! My name is Cresta and I am a college student who has always been fascinated with languages.
The Korean pop culture was the reason why I became interested in learning the Korean language in 2010. Through limited resources online, I was able to build my knowledge and learn at my own pace. Today, I'm proud to say that I can read, speak, and write basic to intermediate Hangul. Since I plan to apply as a scholar student in one of Korea's top university (Seoul National University, I hope I get in!) in the near future, I truly believe mastering the language will give me an edge (and of course, the bonus 'bragging rights' for actually doing something until the end/mastery!).
And the reason behind this campaign is that I want to take this learning journey further by buying Korean language learning books. However, since the airfare to Seoul from Manila can reach up to $400, I figured that this grand plan of language mastery will be more practical if I were to purchase books online and have it shipped to Manila.
The books (A bundle containing 19 books) cost $286 while the shipping costs $78. That totals to $364, which is $364 above what a college student like me can afford. Any amount, big or small, will be very much appreciated and will definitely go towards paying these books. The excess amount that I will receive from this campaign will go towards tax and customs payment. You can see more details regarding these books on mykoreanstore.com which is owned by the YouTubers behind Talk To Me In Korean channel.
For reading this far, I would like to say 감사합니다, or thank you, to you! I hope you could help me make this dream a reality.
