I really enjoy connecting with people and making new acquaintances. I've always been the type of person who strikes up a conversation with someone new at social gatherings or even in everyday situations. It's incredible how many fascinating stories and experiences people have to share :)

I can give time-management tips, tell you about my exchange program experience, and talk about clubs at NU. I will be happy to see you all and hear your concerns/experiences at university so far! You can even come and talk to me about kpop and kdramas, but you will have to book several slots as I will have a lot of things to say and ask :))

Hey there, first-year superstars! Feeling a bit lost in the academic jungle? Swing by our Academic Advising office! We've got the inside scoop on courses, schedules, and all the academic adventures ahead. Let's make your college journey a legendary one – drop in for a chat!

The story of how I got my major mixed up.
When applying to the university, I could not find the major of "economics" in the list of suggested ones and chose "mathematics", thinking that economics is included in the list of specialization of mathematics. I found out that I chose the wrong major and had to choose "undeclared" only during the Orientation Week and transferred to another major in 3 days. That was an incredibly exciting launch into university life!
