About Me: 

A rising senior at Syracuse University's S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications majoring in magazine journalism and minoring in psychology. I have had experience writing for several campus magazines including A-Line – the only Asian American interest magazine at Syracuse University that promotes awareness of cultural, socioeconomic and political issues affecting Asians and Asian Americans, Jerk – a premier student-run monthly publication that confronts controversial political and social issues that affect the student body, and Zipped – Syracuse University's premier fashion & beauty magazine. I've also dabbled in screenwriting and have held a mentorship under animation director and writer Keith Alcorn where I developed my own animated screenplay and pitchbook called "Paperweight." Along with writing, I have a passion for art/design and have proficiency with Photoshop, Indesign, and Illustrator. However most of my background in art comes from studio drawing and I have created my own portfolio of hand-drawn works. One of the greatest subjects of interest that I hold dear to me revolves around diversity, which is why I am a member of Syracuse University's Peer-to-Peer Project, a network of students at SU that connects traditionally enrolled undergraduate students like myself to students with disabilities who are participating in the Access and On Campus programs in a mutually beneficial and supportive relationship. I have native fluency in reading, writing, and speaking Korean through my parents who immigrated from South Korea, and I believe that both my heritage and experience with P2P have shaped my passion for writing about issues of diversity and socio-cultural problems.
