Sally was born and raised in a city called Suwon in South Korea. In 2013, Sally moved to Berkeley to attend UC Berkeley to major in political science and political economy as an undergraduate.
She started working at Social Justice Collaborative in August of 2017, shortly after graduating from UC Berkeley. During her last semester in college, she took an International Area Studies (now called Global Studies) seminar on transnational crimes and political economy, in which stories of many Latin American countries were covered. Taking the seminar led her to find this organization.
Her role at SJC is to prepare the country condition documents that would assist our clients with their immigration court hearings or asylum application interviews. Her goals for the next few years is to help the stories of the underrepresented populations be heard by the rest of the world through studying global affairs at a graduate level.
Sally is bilingual in Korean and English, along with proficiency in French.
