"I never saw a moor, I never saw the sea ; Yet know I how the heather looks, And what a wave must be. I never spoke with God, Nor visited in heaven ; Yet certain am I of the spot As if the chart were given. " 'I never saw a moor' by Emily Dickinson. My dream and will are reflected in this poem. First of all, I am very happy to be able to visit the UN Headquarters in New York city. I would like to thank people who contributed to this valuable opportunity. Although I have never been to the UN, I feel like I've got already used to the UN environment. Me myself once was the part of the Model United Nations, I always had a dream of visiting the UN Headquarters.

Lee Jaegang (이재강)
My name is Jaegang Lee. I am very pleased to be a participant of WFUNA. I am student of Youngsan University who have attention to solving world problem. When I was in middle school, I went to abroad to help people who is suffered from hardship. Through that experience, I decided to be a person who is helping for human being. And I know that if I want to help other people, I need to know how to communicate with them or how to sympathize with them. Therefore I chose my major in English. During my university period, I want to build my career to work right after graduation. So I also serve as representative of UNAI(United Nations Academic Impact) of Youngsan University. This organization believes that education can be an important clue to solve world problem. I agree with this thought so I go through a course of studying for teaching a profession. I believe all human have good nature in their mind so if we draw people closer in any experience to helping other people, world will be better place to live. And I believe WFUNA will be good opportunity to learn how to draw them. Thank you.

Bone of my bones, flesh to my flesh. This was a confession of a man to a woman that he loved. It is an expression of the importance of inter-relationship. Human beings living on this planet is facing complicated problems. It would be important to harmonize with the neighbors and respect each of them and ultimately overcome the difficulties encountering.
