am currently attending high school in Seoul, South Korea. When I grow older, I aspire to become a journalist, more specifically a sports journalists, mostly focusing on tennis or volleyball. The following is my general plan for my future career. I hope to follow this plan, and eventually become a widely known journalist in the future. University Goals: In the near future, I would like to attend a US university, which has a renowned journalism programs, with various internships available at nearby locations, such as large cities.

Completing Internship: As an intern, I wish to be able to experience what a real journalist would experience in the real world. Though for journalism, it is not mandatory to have great internships, I think it would be a nice way to subtly become adapted to my career. With my education minor, it would be helpful to help out at journalism classes in a local school, for I would be able to experience both parts of my classes.
