I grew up in Seoul (shout out to all the Third Culture Kids, TCKs) and graduated with a joint major in Economics and Global International Studies at Bard College. While I currently work at Kantar as a Digital Insights & Analytics Associate Consultant, during my college days I dabbled with a variety of experiences, including policy and strategy work in North Korea and national security, venture capital, and tech startups. I’ve also served in South Korea’s Marine Special Force Reconnaissance Unit and have recently undergone the H-1B visa process. I played for the men’s volleyball team in college and also enjoy exploring cafes, watching the NBA, and reading.
Especially, but not limited to, being an "international student", I understand the challenges when it comes to drawing up plans for the initial career stage, all the while confronting larger questions around self-identity. I’m excited to collaborate with individuals who are navigating different areas of interest, ambitions, and passions and support them in identifying a healthy balance.
