Get ready, everyone! NAKASEC is gearing up for another round of youth blogs for the summer of 2014. Every Thursday, our youth bloggers will be posting their thoughts on what’s happening in the news, at work, in their lives, across the globe…everything!
But before we do that, let’s meet our bloggers. Up first is Jung Bin Cho who hails from Springfield, VA and was active in the fight for in-state tuition in Virginia!
Name: Jung Bin Cho
Location: Springfield, VA
1. Who are you?
Hello readers! I am Jung Bin Cho, and I am currently entering my second year of college. I would have to say that my first year of community college was easy. The luxury of attending a community college gave me a lot of time to work two part-time jobs while maintaining a 3.8 GPA.
2. Where are you?
I have been living in Virginia since I arrive to the U.S. from Korea 13 years ago.
3. What are you doing?
Currently, I am interning at NAKASEC while also working part-time at Home Depot. I am saving up money so that I can attend Virginia Tech for the fall semester.
4. A quote I live by:
“Life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it.” –Charles Swindoll
5. What do you want people to know about you?
I love food, football, and family. I eat food but after an hour I get hungry. Football is my favorite sport. And the struggles of my family continue to motivate me in life.
6. You might be surprised to find out that I:
I am an undocumented student living in Springfield, Virginia.
