Age: 23
 
Major: Communicology, German, and a Business minor

Congrats on your success on the "SMH UH" article! What kind of writing do you enjoy doing most?
Thanks!! I can't believe it got like 10K views!! I really enjoy blogging and writing satirical-type of pieces. Anything where I could get a laugh or two out of someone, even if it's just me... 
 
 
What about writing for Her Campus do you enjoy?
I like the creative freedom we have. We can write about what we want to or find relevant. I also really like the sense of community and friendship that Her Campus promotes.
 
Where do you hope to see the Hawaii Chapter in the next couple years?
I hope that our chapter will have a big presence on campus and that our chapter will double or triple in size. I'd like to see our chapter making the top 10 National articles each week; that would be awesome!
 
What is your dream job and why?
My dream job would be working for Buzzfeed as a writer/actor for their video/entertainment team. I love their videos! Or to play with cats all day and get paid (well) for it. I love cats...
 
If you had an extra $5,000 how would you spend it?
I'd save half for the future first....maybe the smarter move would be to invest in something..hm...but anyways, I'd save it haha. Then I'd realize that I actually need the other $2,500 back to pay for tuition...haha so...yeah. I'd use it to pay for tuition while crying in my mind because I could have used the money to travel.
 
What is your life philosophy?
Hmmm..Keep the peace and never give up. If something doesn't work, there are 10,000 other ways to look at it and find a solution, but if you get caught up and lose your cool, you risk the chance of never achieving your goal.
 
What do you admire the most about yourself?
I think it would be my confidence and positivity. Wasn't always this outspoken and self-assured. Coming from being super, super self-conscious to where I am now took a lot of growth, so I'm proud of that.
 
Who is your role model and why?
My role model would definitely be my mom. She is the bravest and strongest person I know. She came to America from Korea when she was about 19 years old, not speaking a drop of English. Despite all the odds that were against her, she opened up a couple restaurants and worked so hard to provide for my sisters and I. She is the definition of dedication and altruism.
