The KoreabyMe community would like to congratulate one of our fellow writers, Titi Aiyanyo on receiving the Seoul Seoul Honorary Citizenship Award. She is the first Nigerian woman to receive the honor since it began in 1958.
What is the Seoul Honorary Citizenship Award?
Despite the name, actual citizenship is not issued to those who receive this award. Instead, the Seoul Honorary Citizenship is one of the highest honors that foreign nationals can receive in South Korea.
It recognizes foreign residents’ outstanding achievements that have contributed to the betterment of South Korean society. The award recognizes contributions in the fields of science, security, economy, the arts, and society. Or, in many cases, the award recognizes a combination of achievements in a variety of fields. This is the case with Titi Aiyanyo.
