About Me

I get excited about many things, but right now, I'm really into international trade and sustainable development. In other words, I want to find out how we can better leverage trade to help countries develop economically. I'm currently working for an international organization to help Ugandan and Kenyan companies increase export competitiveness. I'm also fascinated by other issues that affect the international community such as human rights and humanitarian aid. Besides work and studies, I am also a Korean traditional percussionist and dancer.
