I was born in South Korea but moved to Hong Kong when I was about 10 months old. I was raised in the metropolitan city until I decided to attend a university in the U.S. I double majored in Psychology and Media Studies at the University of Virginia, as I was always interested in how businesses utilize the perception of media.
In many ways, my past summer marketing internships cultivated my strong interest in business. While I was able to brainstorm creative ideas during the internships, I found that I desire the necessary business acumen to produce a comprehensive marketing plan, and justify my recommendations throughout the projects. I found these tasks were often given to someone more qualified in business evaluations and strategy formation. I realized that with the practical skills and theory of business, I would be able to better leverage my background in psychology and media.
My enthusiasm for novel experiences has definitely shaped my foodie spirit—I try to visit new restaurants whenever I have the opportunity to do so. If you need any recommendations for places to try in Hong Kong, New York, and Durham, feel free to ask!
