I am passionate about developing texts that challenges my readers/viewers to think and evaluate a subject with new perspectives, as well as help them expand their views and knowledge. When consuming media, I look for texts that make me think and help me understand different points of view. From listening to NPR News podcasts to reading the Wall Street Journal, I am constantly reading texts that challenge me and push me to discover more about the world around me.
Rowan University (2019 – ) I am a graduate student going for an MA in Writing. My preferred genre (for reading and writing) is fiction, but I enjoy nonfiction and poetry too! I am currently an intern writer and editor for Quade Media and a freelance writer and editor for ink.mdc. I am simultaneously writing two works in progress (WIP). My master’s project is a memoir based on my experiences as a Korean adoptee in America. And my second WIP is a superhero origin story.
Montclair State University (2016 – 2018) I graduated with honors with a BA in Journalism and a minor in Chinese studies. I had the opportunity to work with the amazing professors and clinical specialists in the School of Communication and Media in developing the news broadcast, Montclair News Lab. I became an executive producer of the weekly show and gained the valuable knowledge and skills that further improved my work ethic, team management, and leadership skills. I was also a staff writer and photographer for the Montclarion.
Cumberland County College (2014 – 2016) I graduated with honors with an AA in Liberal Arts/Journalism. I was an editor for the anthology, L’Esprit and a staff writer and photographer for the Voice.
