My favorite thing to do in Atlanta is...

Trying authentic food! Atlanta's population is so diverse that you can almost get a genuine taste of every culture at its finest restaurants! This is one of the greatest perks about living in a metropolitan city! I like to take my friends out for a new unfamiliar food on the weekends!

What is your favorite Emory tradition?

My favorite Emory tradition is Songfest! It is really exciting to see the first-year residence hall pride/spirit carry on throughout the students' four years at Emory! Upperclass students will come watch the new first-year class represent their first-year hall and reminisce the old memories!

What has been your most impactful class?

My first-year Italian seminar, which focused on memoirs, has impacted my ability to reflect on my life and Korean identity as well as compare it to Italian culture and food customs! This has led me to explore the humanities area at Emory and eventually directed me to my current major today! I love reading about people and their unique cultural differences.

On a random day, you're most likely to find me….

Running around on campus! I love to be active on campus and take advantage of the beautiful Atlanta weather by going to Lullwater Park for a casual run! Or, I end up running to my classes to make sure I get there one time!
