Traveler Bio

My name is Rebecca Zavatchan. I am a fourth-year student at Robert Morris University. I am studying Finance and Hospitality. I have a passion for traveling and learning different languages. I am currently learning Korean, Japanese and Arabic! Once I graduate, I would love to live in as many countries as I can.

This summer, I will be living in Seoul, South Korea. I will be taking classes at Yonsei University while exploring the city as much as possible. I am hoping to improve my Korean language skills as well as learn more about the country’s culture. I am incredibly excited to go on this journey and I’m thrilled to be able to bring you all along with me!
