My dad always told me, "In this modern era, technology is playing a big role. You should too". I was intrigued by his words and at this moment I opened a new window. His words pulled a different view of my hobby, design. Middle school was filled with two years of drawing activities and clubs. But then, I realised it wasn't enough. I need to hone my soft skills.
In high school I was not afraid of taking chances. I was always a curious kid and a risk taker. I believed that all of my high school experience could lead me to gaining beneficial skills. I listed down my goals. I planned to shape my personal traits through communities. I wanted to be more active, have a deeper understanding of school's organization, and most of all, to gain as many experiences as possible. I can assure you, all of those point are ticked. I joined many kinds of the school's organizations and community services. All of this made me sharpen my multitasking, problem solving and especially leadership skills.
Thinking about entering colleges made me feel the same thing I did before I entered high school, I want more! As I was surfing through the net, I stumbled upon KAIST. It exceeded my expectation. Especially, the quote on the Industrial Design's site, "Shape your Future". I have always planned to do things that could shape me and the community wherever I am. And to me, KAIST has the perfect community for that. It made me curious how labyrinths in KAIST could take me. Furthermore, the curriculum in Industrial Design sparked my interest. To learn about design projects focused on marketing and to embed the meaning of designing itself, this curriculum is what I was always looking for.
Lastly, to be able to study at KAIST is that I can shape my personal traits. I can meet many kinds of people from different countries with the perfect community. It can broaden my link and networking skills. I can also learn new languages, new cultures, new ideals and perspective as an international student.
