Her interests in national security and humanitarian rights was fostered during her freshman year abroad in Florence, Italy where she witnessed the colossal impact of the rapidly unfolding refugee crisis in 2015. This led to her co-organization of the first NYU Conference on Race, Racism and Xenophobia: In the Global Context which was held in Florence, New York City, and the European Parliament in Brussels to facilitate a transnational dialogue on these issues amidst the current international political climate. Her studies has allowed her to understand the interrelated causal roots of humanitarian crises and national security, and she hopes to one day shape foreign policy to address these concerns. Helen was born in South Korea and grew up in New York with two siblings, two dogs, and plays soccer and swims in her spare time.
