I am from Seoul, South Korea. Although I was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota, my family moved to Korea when I was three months old. After finishing high school in Korea, I went to University of Michigan to study political science. Before law school, I spent two years in Shanghai, China getting my Master's in Chinese Philosophy. Last summer, I was in Sao Paulo, Brazil, working at a law firm of TozziniFreire and watching the World Cup games. I am interested in the field of international human rights and plan to work at a non-profit organization during this summer. I love traveling/backpacking and have traveled to many different parts of the world.
I am currently serving as Treasurer for Korean American Law Student Association and Alumni Chair for Asian American Pacific Law Student Association.
