“With the help of the PaCIE scholarship, I participate in an internship at a local travel agency in Seoul, South Korea. This experience gave me the chance to work in many areas of the company but what I enjoyed the most was the aspect of event planning. I will seek to focus on this type of work after graduation.”Victoria MorrisonWilkes University
