Home Country: South Korea
Bio: Hello, everyone. Welcome incoming and re-coming international students to Liberty. I am so happy and excited to serve you all as an ambassador. I graduated from a military high school, which is Air Force Aviation Science High School in South Korea, and then served in Air Force as an avionics technician for F-16, TA/FA-50, and the flight simulator. I quitted my job in order to start studying at Liberty as God wished. I have been to Israel, Japan, Richmond KY, and Cleveland OH before I came to Liberty. I have met a lot of good people in churches and enjoyed studying there. I believe God sent me to Liberty. My life goal is to become an airline pilot for Korean air and a Christ-centered leader. I have overcome many trials in my life and counseled many people to light their vision. I am always here to help you all. Please let me know anything I can do for you. Don’t hesitate! You should believe you are always valued and precious in the world.
