Opportunity of the studying abroad, purpose

When I was a high school student, I could not speak English at all, so speaking English fluently was one of my goals in the college life. However, I realized English is just a tool to communicate with people from other countries through the previous study abroad, so I started to think about what I want to do with my English skills. Last year, I participated in the Asia Youth Summit by volunteering and helping discussions as a translator. I was surprised that Asian students told us problems of their countries and opinions clearly, and I noticed I need more experience and knowledge of global issues. As a college student, what I can do right now is studying, so I decided to study abroad again to develop my knowledge of global issues. While study abroad, I’d like to challenge many things such as a volunteer and school activity and to know the cultural difference through living with many international students.
