I was born in Seoul, Korea, and I graduated from the University of Iowa in 2014 with a degree in finance. I’m a desire-chaser, optimist, and lucky one. I have dreamed of joining the Fuqua School of Business at Duke University for a long time, and I made that dream a reality last year. There were lots of difficulties in the middle, but I overcame them with my positivity and joined the MQM: BA program.

I truly believe that it will provide me the competitive edge to help me establish a successful career. My ultimate goal is to run a global company targeting the Asian market and play an active role in the health and beauty industries. I believe a significant synergy can be created in the closely related fields of health and beauty. Targeting consumers in the Asian region, I aspire to become a businessman who makes efficient decisions by reading the market patterns and trends, and grasping consumers needs and wants through better understanding of their behaviors. For that reason, I am eager to develop decision-making and data analysis abilities while in the program and its Marketing track.

Outside of school, I am an enthusiastic Manchester United Football Club fan. If you’re also a fan of Manchester United, we could end up being good friends.
