University of Hawai‘i at Hilo business major Sienna Wareham is attending Hankuk University of Foreign Studies on a Korea Global Scholarship for one year. Hailing from Rigby, ID, Wareham is in her third year of study and already a senior. While at Hankuk, in addition to her business courses, she’s also taking classes in Korean history as well as a course on Korean popular culture and Hallyu, which is South Korea’s export industry of pop culture, entertainment, music, TV dramas, and movies.
“Studying here will help my overall education in that I’m getting a real global view,” says Wareham. “Here, I have the amazing opportunity to meet not only Koreans but people from all over. We all talk about how different our countries are.”
