Each week, we ask one of our new fun-loving exchange students to share a little about themselves and the most revealing question of all, what’s in your backpack?

This week, Yoon-Ji Shin, from Seoul, South Korea, gives us a peek into her black (with pink polka dots) backpack:

What school are you on exchange with and how long will you be at Thunderbird?  

I am an exchange student from Yonsei Graduate School of International Studies in Seoul, S.Korea. I will be staying here until May this year.

What is your favorite part of Thunderbird so far?

My favorite part of Thunderbird is the campus life! This is pretty much a small community where I can get to meet everyone on campus. Spending every minute of my day with the dearest friends makes me think of them as family.

 What are you hoping to do when you leave Thunderbird and graduate?

After graduating, I would love to work at Education-related International Organization.

What are the three most interesting things in your backpack?

Vitamin water, Lip balm and sunglasses.  The things I need to survive in the desert!
