Hello! I am Reini Evangelista, from the University of the Philippines Diliman, and I recently got accepted in the Asia Student Summit 2018 that will be held from July 16-20, 2018, at Seoul, South Korea.
The Asia Student Summit was started in 2016 with the goal of bringing together youth leaders across Asia to expose them to the culture, economy, and educational system of another Asian country - for this year, South Korea - with the hopes that the knowledge that the youth leaders would gain during the summit would help them make significant changes in their respective countries.
This year, the five-day summit would include campus tours in Kyunghee University and Seoul National University, company visits in KBS On and Samsung D'light, and heritage place visits in Gwanghamun and Gyeongbokgung. Lectures will also be given during the event.
My interest in South Korea's culture, media, history, and politics has motivated me to apply for this summit, and it is a dream of mine to be able to visit and learn more about South Korea. I believe that this program, which is a rare opportunity for me, would be a really good way for me to be able to do these things. Getting accepted has made me ecstatic, and I would really love to participate in this summit.
With all of those being said, I would like to ask for your help for funding for this summit. The funds raised will be used for my registration and flight fees. Your help will be very much appreciated.
Thank you very much!
