Hello! My name is Burcu and I live in Kirklareri, a beautiful city in Turkey!
I'm living in Turkey, but I feel that South Korea is the place I want to be in. I'd love to study Korean and after that find a job and live there!
I've studied Design at my university. Currently, I'm working as a freelance designer when I can, but I have not many opportunities, so I'm mostly helping my dad in his convenience store.
Even if I work in 2 different things, it's really difficult to me to make my dream come true. The economy is bad in my country and Turkey's currency, the lira, has a really low value nowadays.
Yes, I can save some money, but if I exchange it to another country currency, it means nothing. My dream is almost impossible to fulfill!
But I have another chance thanks to Airtripp Funding!
I had this friend when I was at college, that loved K-POP and talked me a lot about it and South Korea. That's how I started to be interested on South Korea.
Then, I started to investigate myself about the country and I really loved its traditional culture, its History... I really got interested!
Last year on winter, I made a dream come true and I visited South Korea, after a huge effort. I could meet again my best Korean friend, that I've met before in Istambul when they were travelling around Turkey.
Korean people is so nice and fun! I really love them! And also they have a beautiful and safe country.
I'm learning Korean by myself: I study using books, I watch dorama, I chat with my Korean friends... Korean is a difficult language but its pronunciation and its writting is really beautiful. I love it!
I can have conversations in Korean! Thanks to that I think that 6 months studying in a Korean school will be enough!
My friends say that to me it shouldn't be difficult to find a designer job in South Korea. I think my future is there!
I need an amount of $ 10,050 to be able to study there. I think I can save around $ 2,500, so what I need is $ 7,550. I know is a lot but I really hope that someone can help me! I would be really thankful!
I want to study in the language school provided by a University in Seoul during half a year starting next spring.
When I finish the school I will search for job to stay more time in South Korea if I can get a visa!
I wish I can make this dream come true!
