TOP 5 STRENGTHS
Achiever, learner, connectedness, responsibility, and focus.

FIRST JOB
During high school years, I worked at a Korean radio station in Hawaii, creating radio commercials and being trained to be a news announcer.

CHILDHOOD DREAM
When I was a little girl, I wanted to become a world-renowned Korean traditional dancer to let the world know about my culture. But God had a better idea, and I still get to perform Korean fan dance for God’s glory!

IF I COULD LEARN TO DO ANYTHING…
I would like to speak all spoken languages so that I can network with people around the world and be a witness to the ends of the earth!

IF I HAD A WARNING SIGN…
It would read, “TREAT WITH CAUTION: Holds a 3rd degree black belt in Tae-Kwon-Do.”
