Born in Seoul, moved to Dallas in 1st grade. After moving to the states, I observed my dad go out every day in search of a job. Went out at sunrise, came back late for dinner. My parents knew one person in the United States and hardly spoke English. Witnessing their resilience left a permanent mark on my drive.
Currently I am a senior at Wharton doing an individualized major in product design and management. My goal as a professional and beyond is to help design, build, and market impactful products and services. I thrive when working with teams of individuals who take work for more than just a job. We work at least five of the seven days alive. The results should be an extension of our peculiar style, relentless iteration, and creative excellence.
As important as it is to excel professionally, I believe it is more so essential to focus on developing myself as a better person. By the end of my time, I want to be known as an embodiment of empathy. There is a large gap between my ambitions, both personal and professional, and my current standing. I will slowly but surely close that gap.
My first job was working as a soft-pretzel baker and smoothie barista at my dad's store since 4th grade. Probably my best skills to date. Since then I have worked as a product designer, product manager, investment analyst and founder.
