: Fall 2015: Olivia : Pre-Kinesiology with Certificate in Business: Class of 2018: Eagle, WI: Korean : Co-Rush Chair and Co-Fundraising Chair: Growing up an adoptee in a dominantly white community with white parents, I never actually struggled with my identity – I’m 100% Korean, but I grew up 100% white. Coming to college gave me the opportunity to explore my Asian roots and Asian-American identity. In my eyes, aKDPhi not only provided a community to grow as an Asian-American, but also as a leader and a person in general.: Even as a neo, I’ve already had so many opportunities to challenge myself as an individual. The only way is up, and I can’t wait to see how aKDPhi shapes me for the future.: Hiking, running, ice skating, thrifting, crafting, potatoes: Currently a full-time college student with full-time obligations hoping to be a medical malpractice lawyer in the future.
