Traveler Bio

Ahn-nyong-ha-se-yo! Hello everyone! My name is Laura Souto. I was born and raised in Brazil but have been living in the United States for over 12 years. I first moved from São Paulo, Brazil  to Washington D.C. and then made the big move over to Texas. I am now a student at the University of Texas at Austin. 

I am studying abroad in Seoul, South Korea for a little over four months this year at Korea University. This is a big year for me since I will be graduating from college with a major in public relations and minors in global studies, Spanish and medicine. I am most excited to eat delicious local food and learn some more Korean while abroad. I am so happy I can share this learning journey with you! Najung-e yaegihae! Talk to you more soon!
