Greetings from Seoul!
I am a recent college graduate from Korea, majored in Education. One of my main concerns throughout college was diversity (or multicultural) education; I have been working with young North Korean defectors for many years. After graduating in 2010, I have served as a teacher at an alternative school for them.
I have devoted much of my time to support various non-profit projects by participating as an intern or a volunteer. I have worked for the Korean National Committee for UNEP and WFP USA, and also traveled to Mongolia and Uzbekistan to lend a helping hand. I just escaped from the hot weather of Tashkent recently and am enjoying being home.
I believe I am naturally gifted with children. I love to work with them and I have many of such experience. I used to be an assistant teacher at a child care center in Ohio, a Sunday school teacher and a babysitter lots of times. I started to understand the importance of reading in early age by participating in the “Ohio Reads” Program: the grant that community volunteers tutor elementary children in reading. Those ideas led me to Edit the World's exciting idea which will empower children around the world.
I’m looking forward to helping support the mission-driven project and the team. Appreciate the opportunity.
