Why did you choose UH Law? UH Law school has not only a good educational program but also diverse cultural environment. I thought I could experience something that I couldn’t get from the Mainland. In addition, Hawaii’s perfect weather and beautiful scenery attracted me to come here. Hawaii is an optimal place to study and enjoy my life at the same time.
What were you doing before you started Law School? I worked for a couple of TV stations as a program director for 4 years. I was involved in producing TV news, a variety of TV shows, local commercials, etc. Since 2002, I have been working for Korea Sports Promotion Organization, a public corporation under the Korean government, as a project coordinator. As a business developer and sports marketer, I am mostly involved in international projects to build new sports fund-raising businesses, engaging with International sports organizations such as IOC, OCA, ISU, and UIM.
Where are you headed after you graduate?: I will probably go back to my country and work for the same company again for awhile. Ultimately, I plan to teach students at a university as a professor.
Describe UH Law in three words. Diverse, Humane, Professional
Where can we find you when you're not in class? I would say I’m a quasi-librarian because I stay in the library from 8:00 AM til closing time.
