After that, I participated in the Korean literature translation competition sponsored by the Korean Cultural Center in Indonesia in 2021 and ranked second. When the announcement was made, it turned out that I had actually won 2nd place, and I was really surprised when I heard that and didn’t believe it. The 25th KSpeech World Contest offers a choice of four themes for each participant to choose. The first theme is the steps to spread the Korean language in the global village and develop Korean culture. For this competition, Shavira decided to discuss the first topic because she was interested and had an idea of how to spread the Korean language in the world. The first idea was to increase the number of Korean language contests, even online.
