Sejin received her B.A. in International Studies from Emory University. She has worked for the Korean Broadcasting System (KBS) in Seoul, South Korea as an International Relations and World News Marketing intern for two summers. She also worked as an Investigative Reporting intern at WSB-TV in Atlanta, Georgia, where she helped cover major stories in the spring of 2015, such as the Atlanta Public Schools cheating scandal and drug busts “Inside the Bluff” of Atlanta’s biggest heroin neighborhood. Sejin is interested in civic and solutions-focused journalism. By expanding her skills in virtual reality and data journalism, she hopes to be part of a greater movement in bridging social and political chasms in all levels of society and throughout the world. Additionally, she is eager to apply a human-centered, design-thinking approach to her multimedia stories. If all else fails, you ask? You’ll find her working as a full-time advocate of peace and prosperity for cocker-spaniels by day and as a proud Golden State Warriors fan by night. Her comfort foods are grits, fried okra and peach cobbler with a dollop of vanilla ice cream on top.
