I was born in South Korea and moved to the United States when I was seven. Growing up, my parents wanted me to experience the world that I lived in different countries such as the Philippines, Japan, and Canada as well. Me living in multiple countries and states taught me how to accept and learn the differences within one another and expanded my limits on creativity.

 

I was always the bubbly, friendly, and smart girl who stood up to help others. Having a  great passion for volunteer works, I had a strong belief that a single helping hand can make a big difference. Pulsera Project is one of the fundraiser that I organized back in high school. The artists from Nicaragua and Guatemala made colorful pulseras, bracelets in Spanish, to be sold to students. The mission is to make the world a more colorful and just place by educating and empowering Central American communities and U.S. students. With what we raised, many children and adults were able to receive an education and get employed. A five-dollar bracelet might not seem much, but it made a big difference to the ones in Nicaragua. Just like that, I want my design works to create a better and helping experience for all.
