Ewha hosts women of the world

Jan 30,2008
A total of 27 elite women from developing countries such as Guatemala, Honduras, Ghana and Bangladesh, brought together in Seoul, recently earned their graduate degrees at Ewha Womans University.
Ewha is the world’s largest women’s university and is generally ranked among the top 10 schools in Korea.
Government officials and researchers from different countries participated in a graduation ceremony of the Ewha-Korea International Cooperation master’s course held at Ewha last Thursday.
The graduates have lived and studied in Seoul for one year.
A number of the women called Seoul a dynamic city.
“I think that Korean people work hard during weekdays while they enjoy their spare time on weekends,” said Nafriza Shayma, 34, a judge in Bangladesh. “I like the way they live. I gathered a lot of useful information in Seoul that I will need in the global market. I will bring my knowledge to Bagladesh and make full use of it.”
Another Ewha graduate, Guatemalan Lucia Pezza Rossi, offered her impressions after residing in Seoul for a year.
“I am very interested in seeing Korean people inside the subway,” Rossi said. “They seem to be buried in meditation because they are so quiet on the train.”
She also said Seoul did not feel threatening despite its huge size. “I am surprised that anywhere in Seoul is very safe,” Rossi said. “I also am impressed by the English skills of young people.”
The tuition-free program is designed to promote women leaders.
