Back in May, I get to know about the application from the Seoul Metropolitan Government Facebook and decided to give my tough luck a try. Unaware of the result and maybe my luck just isn’t that tough, I was already one of the 200 people who are appointed to be a 2014 Global Seoul-Mate!
The main duty of a Global Seoul-Mate is to seek out Seoul’s many hidden attractions and promote Seoul in colorful and interesting ways to the global community.
Of course, I have been indeed a fan of Seoul, South Korea due to it’s beautiful city, cultures and language, and as a Seoul-Mate, it is my duty to share with everyone about the attractions in Seoul!
Upon being selected, a certificate will be issued in your name by the Seoul Metropolitan Government and can be downloaded on their website. Other than just a certificate, Seoul Mates are allowed to download the icon and published it onto their social network accounts (I always wanted to have one of these)!
There will be missions waiting to be completed by us and those who have successfully finished it will win themselves a gift. It is really an honor to be appointed as a Global Seoul-Mate, though I am still lacking a lot, but I guess it is time for me to make use of my Korean language skills to bring everyone more contents about Seoul.
Once again I sincerely thank the Seoul Metropolitan Government for giving me a chance to participate in this programme and have a great weekend to everyone!
