Best of Korea in London
Young Leader Jodi-ann an event to show her community the beauty of Korean culture.
Jodi-ann wanted to shed light on Korea from a light-hearted perspective, informing people from different backgrounds about the culture, to share one of her passions and to highlight local communities to Korean products and where the can be purchased. She delivered a presentation with facts and information on Korean fashion music and beauty, with Korean food, snacks and drinks for people to try as well as goodie bags for everyone to take home.
24 people were brought together to both gain and share their knowledge on all things Korean. Everyone left the event with more knowledge on Korean culure than they enterd with and enjoyed trying out the different cuisine. There was also a greater sense of community built among the locals as a result.
Following this Jodi-ann is now fully motivated to visit Korea herself one day. She also has ambitions to launch her business in fashion design and clothes making, having gone on to an enterprise course.
