ETHNICITY: Korean

"People perceive me as Korean."

"It’s frustrating that in the workforce, there aren’t as many Asian role models, especially in the world I want to enter - healthcare administration. I haven’t even interacted with someone that’s Asian in an administrative role. That’s frustrating to see because it’s not our incapability but some sort of structural mechanism blocking us from getting there."

"I want to believe in a future where race doesn’t exist, but I feel like that’s too idealistic, and it’s not actually going to happen, but it would be nice."
