Seungeun Lee

Head of exchange and cooperation team at Mongolian Center of Culture and Economy in Korea
[Nationality: South Korean] Never been ambitious, never had a dream, never planned the future. Does it sound too carefree or irresponsible? She rather nervous about uncertainty and tries her best to be a reliable person. She used to hide her feelings and thoughts and cared about what others wanted her to do. So she was often confused and unsure about herself. One day, she dared to follow her own interest going to Mongolia as an exchange student. She was supposed to stay 6 months but she stayed for 6 years, after all, led by her interest without any plan all the time. She studied and worked at MIU and graduated with a master's degree in linguistics at the MNUE. She was also dispatched to Mongolia as a World Friends Korea ICT volunteer. Still now, she doesn't have a dream or a life plan. But she is not that fearful of the future as before since she knows following an interest makes a unique experience, and the experience leads to a chance which is often better than she could ever imagine
