Hyunjoo Ji

Student @Taejon Christian International School
Born under two loving parents, Hyunjoo studies to become the better resource for the society. She runs a project with few of her passionate MUNers called Executive Leaders' Operative Society (ELOS) to eliminate the gap of the opportunity provided for students of different backgrounds. She is also an amateur writer who is currently working with a Korean culture magazine I'M 66100 to publish an article about the experience as a plus sized individual. Having been abroad for three years, she has been through various health issues (emetophobia) and academic concerns to return to home. She is interested in changing the paradigm in Korean education to be oriented around the student themselves.

Sea-Yun Pius Joung

Student @Taejon Christian International School
Having spent most of his life abroad, from Australia, through to Norway, Sea-Yun has been able to learn several life tools. The first is the ability to adapt to a given culture. At the most fundamental level, Sea-Yun has learned how different cultures have different histories (history being derived from “historia”, being also the root word of “history”). The shared memory of the ups and downs of history seems to be what defines a country and its culture. So, you ask, which culture he is from? Well, he loves to eat Kimchi at his meals, but he also enjoys watching AFL (Aussie Rules Footy), while he also loves to admire the beautiful Nidaros Cathedral.

Seoyoon Song

Student @Daejeon Yongsan High School
SeoYoon Song is currently attending Yong San High School in Daejeon. She would like to take this opportunity to share the importance of gratitude that she learned through her experience in high school as one of the members of student council for the past three years. The topic ‘rethink’ reminded her of a project she directed in her school which most of the students came together to show their appreciation to the staff members of the school. This project became viral leading other schools to do the same. She learned how much warmer it felt around her when people appreciated what one another did and would like to encourage other people to show their appreciation just like her.
