  • Profile description
  • Hello! My name is Vickie, and I'm currently a working holiday visa holder from the USA. I'm in South Korea for my gap year before I enter university. I'm taking this opportunity to try living independently, as well as gain some experience in various jobs. I've been able to travel to a few countries already, but this is my first time on a long-term trip alone. I'm an adaptable and hard worker, and I'm always open to learning new things. I'm excited to be part of the community :)
