I applied to the CLS program for Summer 2016!! I am very excited about it.  CLS stands for Critical language scholarship.  It’s an all-expenses paid eight-week trip to a country to study a critical language.  They offer a lot of “off-chart” languages like Hindi and Bengali and Bahasa Indonesia and Turkish.  I was tempted by some of these, but…

Dad: “Make sure you consider your safety.”

Mom: “Make sure you consider how learning any of those languages will help you in your future career.”

So in the end, I went with Korean.  Korea is safe, and I can see myself using it in my job.  The next blog post has the personal statement I wrote.  I can’t believe how many of these I’ve written.

Anyway, I hope I get it!!! 😀 😀 😀
