Bio: Hi! My name is Peace, and I am from Malaysia! I am currently a sophomore studying business administration with the hopes of someday running my own company! I adventured to the United States in August 2021 for the first time ever, and in my short time here in the States and at Liberty, I have been challenged more than ever before, but I have also grown in so many ways!

Because of them, I am so excited for this opportunity to extend the love that has been shown to me and to serve you and walk alongside you as you adapt to a new culture in the States and at Liberty!

Home Country: South Korea

Major: Mechanical Engineering

Bio: Hello, there! My name is Sohyun Park and I was born in South Korea. I have been studying Mechanical Engineering in Liberty since Fall 2019. I was 7 years old when I came to the United States the first time, but I went back to Korea after two years. Then I returned to the States during middle school, so this is my 10th year residing in the United States. I lived in four different States before coming to Lynchburg. I am fluent in both Korean and English and speak a little bit (very little bit) of French. In my free time, I like to work out, cook, and read the Bible. I am excited to serve international students as an ambassador. I wanted to be part of this team because I know many of you are having trouble adapting to an unfamiliar environment. As an international student who has been in your shoes, I am here to help anyone overcome homesickness, language barrier, and even culture shocks. I am glad how God gave me chance to assist Liberty students who speak English as a second language. I hope you make Lynchburg a new home in your heart soon.
