I was born in Korea and grew up in the state of Montana where I learned to ski, rock climb, fly fish, and developed a deep hatred for white supremacy and patriarchy. I transferred from Montana State University after my first year and have been working towards a BA in Government. This fall I am returning to Cornell after a year on leave in the city of Philadelphia where I worked as a community organizer and helped to build the power we need to overhaul our government, stop the climate crisis, and get free.

I'm excited to build community with you here at Cornell, explore Ithaca, go on late night walks to food trucks, and hold you accountable to taking care of yourself and other, having a lot of fun, and making the most of our time here.
