SGA continues to prove itself as a respected and reliable resource for the students of UNCSA.

Hi! I was born in South Korea and grew up in New Port Richey, Florida. I moved to Winston Salem when I started UNCSA’s contemporary dance program as a junior in high school. I decided to continue my training in UNCSA BFA program and now I’m a rising junior in college. I’m so excited to be a part of SGA and work with these amazing people to make the student body’s experience at UNCSA better. Last year I started UNCSA ACT (Asians Come Together) club, and I found that I really enjoyed using my voice and actions as a student in a leadership position to bring more awareness and inclusivity into our community, so I’m hoping that in SGA I’ll have more opportunities to make sure other student’s voices will be heard as well.
