Leader Bio

Woojin was born in Seoul and raised in Vancouver. He is a third-year ("junior") living in Winthrop House, likely studying Philosophy with a secondary in Government. In his past few years at Harvard, he's reviewed films and music concerts, interviewed K-pop-stars, written a children's storybook, and performed with the Asian dance troupe. He loves to mesh together different foods (for instance, chicken and waffles, rice and ice cream—it's a lot better than it sounds) and explore new places! Last summer, he went macaron-shopping in Paris, karaoke-hopping in Hong Kong, and skydiving in Cape Town! This summer, he won't be able to travel much but he'll be living life vicariously through K-dramas and Bong Joon Ho films. When not reading philosophy books at Widener, you can find him drawing Snoopy cartoons, baking cookies, visiting art museums, and feasting on K-bbq! He's super excited to return to FIP this year and welcome everyone to the wonderful international community! FIP 2020, allons-y!
