This was the first in-person commencement ceremony of SolBridge in 2 years, therefore, it brought a lot of joy to the students to finally get to share this achievement together after a long way. It has been an honor to see these distinguished students mark a milestone in their educational journey. Although several students whose families have traveled a long way from their home countries come to celebrate this moment together; most of them don't have their families there. However, the friends are still very happy to share this achievement together. They create an extremely warm space with happy smiles, like a special family with members from all over the world.
The CEO of WalkintoKorea, Mr. Kang Deahoon, also attended the graduation to share this precious moment with his employee, Quynh Anh. She shared, "I am very grateful that Mr. Kang came to my graduation. Besides being my boss, he is also like an uncle of mine. So even though my parents couldn't come to Korea to attend this ceremony, I still feel like I have my family here. I want to thank him very much."
