Bio: I am a second-year student at Harvard Law School, and I graduated with a B.A. from the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs at Princeton University. Before coming to law school, I worked as the Research and Program Assistant at the U.S.-Asia Law Institute, where I provided research and editing support to the institute's directors for publications relating to U.S.-China relations, public international law and international development. On campus, I am closely involved with the Harvard International Law Journal as an Article Editor and Symposium Chair; the Korean Association of Harvard Law School as Co-President; and the Asian Pacific American Law Students Association as the Sponsorship Chair. I am a certified SCUBA diver and love diving with manta rays and nurse sharks in tropical islands. In my spare time, I like playing the acoustic guitar and writing my own songs.
