Experience and Activities Overview
Focused in strategy, professional development, leadership, and community engagement
I provide front-line assistance to students and faculty by directing them to the appropriate campus resources. I am also responsible for working on a variety of administrative and cross-functional tasks in the CALS student services office.
I routinely conduct resume and cover letter critiques to support students with their career goals ranging from biomedical engineering research and clinical internships to marketing, consulting, or environmental activism positions.
At the start of every week, I curate a schedule of campus-wide events including networking opportunities, software or skills workshops, panels, and health/wellness events for a bulletin board that is posted outside the student services office and on Cornell's social-media-like internal communications platform, Chatter.
I work with CALS Exchange to consolidate information about university partnerships and conduct research for estimated budgets for students planning to study abroad through programs offered from our 29 partner universities.
I am also working on a rooms project, which involves recording room layouts to ensure that students and faculty know how to set up rooms after use. I take photos of the rooms and write descriptions including room layout, number of seats, table arrangement, etc.
Branding & Marketing Intern, Marketing Strategy Dharma (MSD)
MSD is a branding and marketing company focused on forming strategic branding and partnerships for emerging and social impact brands.
As an intern, I conducted and analyzed market research for potential clients and companies of interest. I also revamped MSD's social media strategy and moderated the MSD social media accounts (Twitter and LinkedIn). Additionally, I wrote bi-weekly editorial-styled blog posts for the company's official website. These posts focused on marketing and branding trends relevant to MSD's interests in emerging and social impact brands.

Volunteer Intern, Purses for Nurses
Purses for Nurses is a non-profit organization that uses profits from selling donated or refurbished purses to fund nurses' volunteer trips to provide healthcare to populations in the most need.
I worked directly with the Melissa Zuk, the founder, to organize inventory and to plan potential outreach and event plans. As the organizations' website was going through several large updates, I researched several e-commerce options, which was used in the organization's annual board meeting.
Peer Instructor, Temple University Fox School of Business University Seminar Program
The university seminar program was designed to help develop students by facilitating student engagement, professional development, and personal growth in the university's academic community.
I instructed a seminar of 15 first-year international students enrolled in the business school. I worked directly with the primary instructor to develop lesson plans and lead lessons on professional development, American culture, university resources. As a student and a second-generation Korean American, I was able to provide personal insights on utilizing university resources, networking, and cultural differences and norms in the American education systems.
Throughout the seminar I was responsible for moderating all communication channels and providing individualized followups with students to ensure their academic and personal success at the university.
President & Chapter Founder, Future Business Leaders of America-Phi Beta Lambda (FBLA-PBL)
I founded the Cornell University chapter of FBLA-PBL to provide a greater diversity of students with the opportunity to be involved in a professional organization and be a part of the community of business organizations at Cornell. After transferring to Cornell University, I realized that there was a need for an inclusive and flexible business organization. Our chapter currently includes 30 official members and counting, as we welcome students to join us in our all-year-round recruitment process. Our chapter strives to foster community and growth oriented values: inclusivity, creativity, voice, education, professional and personal development.
External Affairs & Outreach Committee, FBLA-PBL (Temple University Chapter)
I started my involvement with FBLA-PBL during my time as a student at Temple University. As a member of the External Affairs & Outreach Committee, I raised awareness about FBLA-PBL in the greater university community by being involved with our fundraising initiatives and events as well as attending other organizations' events.
Member, Communication Student Advisory Board (CSAB)
The communication advisory board acts as a liaison between the communication department's faculty and students. Throughout the school year, CSAB plays an integral role in planning and running events with alumni, speaker panels, department events (i.e. the 2016 grand opening ceremony), COMMConnect, etc.
Member, Society for Women in Business (SWIB)
SWIB is the largest undergraduate business organization for women at Cornell. The organization provides members networking and professional development opportunities with business leaders and alumni.
