As an industrial designer, my passion lies in the creation of purposeful and captivating products and services, working alongside like-minded team members who share a common vision. The challenges that come with design are a source of joy and fulfillment, continually inspiring me to push boundaries in my work. Looking ahead, my goal is to forge a path in the field of industrial design, consistently seeking opportunities to learn, evolve, and leave a positive impact on the world.

My early years in Seoul, Korea, were marked by an insatiable curiosity and a knack for hands-on creativity. Growing up in a modest apartment, I found delight in crafting my own toys and exploring various amusements. My mother, recognizing my innate talent, encouraged and supported me in pursuing my interests, nurturing the seed of creativity that would grow into a profound passion for design.
This childhood hobby became the catalyst for my educational journey, leading me to pursue both a bachelor's and master's degree in industrial design at Rhode Island School of Design. During my time at RISD, I delved deeper into hands-on practices, immersing myself in transformative experiences that expanded my thinking and honed my craftsmanship.

The journey from my formative years to my academic pursuits has been one of discovery, growth, and refinement. Today, as an aspiring industrial designer, I am eager to embrace new challenges, draw on my experiences, and bring forth innovative solutions that elevate the human experience. With an unwavering commitment to continuous learning and a dedication to making a positive impact, I am excited to embrace the boundless possibilities that lie ahead on my design journey.
