As much as I’ve loved my time in Korea, I’m very happy to be going home. I wouldn’t trade this experience for anything, but I am exhausted. I feel so lucky to have been part of this program and to learn so much about the Olympics, organizing groups, sponsors, and so much more.
Before heading back to Seoul, I was able to attend the Figure Skating Exhibition Gala. This was so fun to be able to see performances by so many of the top figure skaters in the world. This event isn’t scored or judged, so it was awesome to see the figure skaters have fun with their routines and be creative, since there weren’t strict rules to follow. My favorites were the Canadians and Spanish (look up videos of their routines to see why!).
One of my favorite things while I’ve been here was to collect and trade pins with other visitors. I think I got a pretty good collection and hope to be able to add on to it at future Games.
