"Revolution is not a one-time event. It is becoming always vigilant for the smallest opportunity to make a genuine change in established, outgrown responses; for instance, it is learning to address each other’s difference with respect." -Audre Lorde

Area of Expertise: Making connections between people and ideas.

Dream Destination: Kyoto, Japan

Education: B.A. in Communications Studies from the University of Michigan

Soundtrack of my Life: The entire Studio Ghibli soundtrack by Joe Hisaishi and "Hood" by Tablo and Joey Badass.

Guilty Pleasures: ASMR videos, microwavable popcorn, and the Harry Potter audiobooks (but only the Stephen Fry version).

Why I care about making Breakthroughs happen: As a Korean American daughter of immigrants, I've experienced both setbacks and support in institutional settings. I want to use my experience and privilege to help students gain access to education and employment and ultimately build a more equitable society with them.
