Who I Am  

A Little About Me

I am a Junior at Johns Hopkins University, majoring in Psychology with minors in Integrated Marketing and Communications and Leadership Studies. I currently serve as the Co-Director of Camp Kesem at Johns Hopkins, a chapter of a national non-profit dedicated to serving children through and beyond a parent's cancer, and am the PR/Social Media Manager for Hopvertising, a student-run integrated advertising agency. My friends would describe me as a "Friday night personality with a Sunday morning heart." I was adopted from South Korea at six-months-old, and I haven't been outside of the country since! I was raised in the Metro Detroit area and packed my bags to Baltimore, MD to pursue my studies. However, I relocated to Metro Detroit in March 2020 due to COVID-19. I love big cities, the smell of old books, baking chocolate chip cookies, and checking off to-do lists.
