It is bittersweet to graduate. I am happy that I am actually growing up, but I am also sad because I would not see any of my friends and my class again. I chose to go to UBC, because I really liked the campus and BC in general. I am little bit nervous but excited at the same time, because I will experience new things. I think the biggest challenge will be balancing out priorities. I will have to take care of homework and assignments which will be a lot more than in high school.

I also think it is bittersweet. I am kind of afraid to leave the school and Korea but I also want to experience new things at the same time. I am still considering between two schools. I am excited to meet new people and to experience new country next year. The biggest challenge will be meeting new people and experiencing new culture. I will try to understand the different culture and mix with many people naturally.

It is kind of sad to graduate, since it will be the last year to see my classmates. I have not decided where to go for next year yet. Also, I am not very excited to go to university! This is because going to university means getting into the society and I am not really sure if I could adjust to the new environment. The first challenge will probably be meeting new people and getting close with them. The biggest challenge will be meeting people with different cultures. Since I will be a foreigner for them, it would be hard to communicate with the natives of other international students. To overcome this, I will try to get into their community and try to adjust to the lifestyle.

I am excited and scared at the same time. It’s funny how we all start from the same beginnings but end up in completely different places in life. I will miss being in high school! Yes I chose the school I will go to! well, I got accepted to Early decision so I have no other choice then to go to the school I have been accepted lol I am very very excited to go to the new school! I visited the campus at the start of April and I loved the campus. I am very looking forward next year as an university student!I think the biggest challenge would be the culture! Now that I am going to America, I will have to get to know the Western culture which may sound easy but growing up in a Korean community for the past 18 years, this may be difficult for me. Thus, I will have to be very open minded and will have to be willing to learn new things and meet new people!

It is not as exciting as I thought to graduate high school. I am having concerns over excitement. Currently, I am still waiting for two more schools, but I pretty much chose to go to UIUC. I am excited to go to the school! I was invited to Kakao chat for UIUC class of 2021. Through this chance, I was able to meet new people and experience the whole new environment. I am mostly concerned in terms of academic performance. Since I did not study in foreign curriculum for long time as others, I still have issues sometimes. Due to this, I am planning to prepare for few contents in college. To specify, I am planning to study Calculus in order to perform better in university.

I feel very weird about graduating, because I feel like it has not been that long sinceI came to BIS. I have chosen the university that I want to go to, since I was accepted to the first university that I wanted to go to. I feel excited about my life in university and the subject that i am going to take. The biggest concern will be that I will face socializing with others and also the academics. I am worried if I will be able to get along with other students and adapt to the new environment, since I have never been to the United State. Also, I am worried about the academic subjects, since there is nobody who can support me and I am not use to the school's academic system. In oder to overcome the concerns, I will try to understand their culture and to go along with variety of students. I will also try my best for my academic subjects.
