I was born on March 1, 1989, in Seoul, South Korea. My parents and I lived in Seoul until I was almost three years old when they decided to move us to the States. We arrived in Philadelphia in late October, 1991. Because I would be growing up in America, one of my parents’ fears was that I would lose the Korean side of me. To make sure this did not happen, they enrolled me to a weekly Korean School program at a local church. My parents were delighted when we went to a Korean restaurant and I was finally able to read out the whole menu to them. I was five years old then. I attended Korean School for four years. My parents figured that conversing regularly with them would help me out moving forward.
I have a younger brother of twelve years named Chris. There may be an age gap, but we are very close. I have also learned a lot from having him in my life. He’s made me more responsible and patient. And he also forces me to think more because I have to be able to explain things to him in a more broken down matter so he could understand a particular concept.
- I love action movies! Sometimes, the story may be really nonsensical, but I love the action! My favorite is the Bourne Series. Matt Damon is awesome in the movies!
- I’m a huge fan of professional tennis. I watch both the WTA (Women’s Tennis Association) and the ATP (Association of Tennis Professionals). My first encounter with tennis was when I was six years old. Oddly enough, I hated it at first, but grew to love it after I watched a match that featured WTA French pro, Amelie Mauresmo(photo on the right), in 2006. My favorite from the ATP is the Swiss, Roger Federer(photo on the left). Currently, I blog about ATP tennis as an assignment for my Social Media Innovation course!

During my fall 2011 semester, I took two of my major course requirements for MIS. One of them was called “Enterprise IT Architecture.” This course taught my classmates and I how to research technologies and their business values. Most importantly, we had to be able to put our research and summarize it in one page. This taught us to become better researchers and succinct writers. Enterprise IT Architecture was broken down to three parts:
Part 1: Traditional IT Architecture Flash Research
Part 2: Value Delivery Platform Flash Research
Part 3: Digital Ecosystems Flash Research
