What’s something that people would be surprised to know about you?

It might not surprise everyone but I’m 22 years old, many people think I’m a teenager.

How did the onset of this year’s public health crisis change your outlook on life and/or work?

Like many people, I didn't have much work these past few months, but as a result, I was able to spend more time with my family in South Korea. I’m also trying new hobbies and learning more about digital/virtual concepts for the future.

What’s the first thing you’re going to do after coming out of quarantine?

The first thing I would like to do is to go on a picnic. A vacation with a swimming pool would be nice, too. In general, any traveling abroad for work or leisure is going to feel freeing, and I will appreciate every bit of it.

What is your stance on the current state of affairs in the US regarding the Black Lives Matter movement, protests, and police brutality?

I feel really sad, as I do in all situations of racism. This is an issue that has to be fixed globally, and we all must look inside ourselves to understand how we can help as individuals.

Are you taking part in the movement? If so, how?

I am in Seoul, Korea now, and there are a few, though no huge protests here. Nevertheless, I keep looking for news about this and doing my best to understand the situation correctly.
