I am greatly pleased to share with you that I have been selected from 808 applicants to be a part of youth leaders to attend the Asia Student Summit 2018 on July 18th-20th 2018 in Seoul, South Korea. With the theme, “Encouraging Talented Young Leaders for a Better Development of the Country,” the program is aimed specifically for young people who have a passion about Entrepreneurship, Social Programs, Culture, and who are ready to become part of world future leaders.
In 2016, the Asia Student Summit was started with the goal of bringing youth leaders together across Asia to expose and immerse them to cultural, economical, political, and economic background of other Asian countries (this year, South Korea) and in turn gain knowledge from the program that would inspire them to help make significant changes in their respective countries.
The five-day summit would take us delegates in reputable campuses such as Kyunghee University and Seoul National University; companies like KBS On and Samsung D'light; and heritage sites such as Gwanghwamun and Gyeongbokgung.
We will be attending success preparation class and seminars by prominent foreign speakers. Lastly, we will acquire a wider perspective and expand our networks through collaborative activities with delegates coming from different countries. This could also be grasped as a good opportunity to learn about their lives and culture while sharing ours at the same time.
My huge interest in South Korea's language, culture, media, and history, as well as my advocacy as a teacher for inclusive, relevant, and quality education for all students has motivated me to apply for this summit. I believe that this program, will give me an opportunity to serve and learn what will be of use to better myself and my community.
In this regard, I would like to ask for your help by means of financial donation that I can use for my flight and my registration fee which costs $600 USD. Any amount will be highly appreciated.
I'm leaning on you, and holding onto what you've got. ❤️
