Kelly Hong - University of California, Berkeley (2017 participant)

The Global Summer Program offered me the necessary catalyst to start my journey on exploring opportunities in Asia. From 'Wine and Cheese' networking nights with Managing Directors of Shell and Audi, as well as amazing SMU Alumni entrepreneurs, to company visits, the entire program was planned very thoroughly and geared towards student success. Through SMU, I made friends who will always have a place in my heart and motivate me to continue being a global explorer. While a month is very short, I believe the adventures I experienced abroad, in a new environment, are reason enough to expand my studies overseas. I cannot express in words how grateful I am to be a participant of the SMU Global Summer Programme.
