How UNL's political science program helped her grow
"As a transfer student from South Korea to the U.S., UNL pols has been an enriching journey. The department proved to be an exceptional hub teeming with opportunities. What set it apart was the genuine care shown by the professors, particularly for students like me who were acclimating to the American college system. (My academic advisor, Dr. White was the best!) The supportive environment and the valuable educational experience have truly made UNL pols the perfect fit for my academic pursuits and future career aspirations."

Her advice for UNL students
"I highly encourage students, especially international ones, to actively participate in on-campus activities and take advantage of opportunities provided by the school that may connect to future job prospects. A significant highlight of my academic journey, which remains close to my heart, was writing for the school newspaper, The Daily Nebraskan. This experience played a crucial role in securing my first job at an English newsroom in Seoul upon my return to South Korea after graduation. Make the most of your time by actively seeking and embracing such valuable opportunities!"
