After dodging chai wallahs and spice markets in India and losing one too many ugg boots to the maliciously deep blankets of snow in Japan, I had finally reached the final destination to my Asia trip: South Korea.
The opportunity to live in Seoul for a month has been graciously granted to me by the Australian-Korea Foundation, the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trading and the University of Sydney. This fellowship enables me to experience the work culture in a foreign country, but also promote a close relationship between Australia and Korea. My work position is interning for the radio station 'Traffic Broadcasting Service' (tbs eFM), where I will write and report for the shows ‘This Morning’ with Alex Jensen and a first of its kind quiz program called ‘The Qube’.
