I remember one of the reasons for choosing my studies, Communication and Media at Erasmus University, was the opportunity to go on exchange as part of the program. The first year went by so quick and in the second year the application process already started. London was the first choice on my List and a few months later I was holding a badge with this destination on it. After a long summer break the time was there, time to go to London Goldsmiths University!
Before even deciding where I wanted to go on exchange, I set myself a goal: to become a local in a city other than Rotterdam because I have never lived anywhere else. After setting that goal, I needed to figure out where I wanted to become a local, and this is where my passion played a large role: food. I let my passion for food choose where I would wanted to spend four months of my life in and that turned out to be South-Korea. Because of my (basic) knowledge about their famous dishes such as Korean BBQ, Bibimbap, and their famous street food, I became very intrigued to learn more about the Korean cuisine!
