Isaac Yi

It’s time for another spotlight on one of our summer youth bloggers. Meet Isaac Yi! He’s been part of the KRC and NAKASEC family since 2010 and is currently interning at NAKASEC’s Los Angeles office.


Name: Isaac Yi
Location: Los Angeles, CA

1. Who are you?
My name is Isaac Yi. I am a Korean American born and raised in Koreatown, Los Angeles. I am a student at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities studying Political Science. I am a deeply rooted Christian attending L.A. Open Door Presbyterian Church and the Korean Presbyterian Church of Minnesota when I am in school. I enjoy sports of ALL kinds, including basketball, tennis, and baseball. I also enjoy dancing. Though I haven’t had a chance to get back into it since high school, I don’t think I am done with dancing just yet. I am an introvert at heart but dream of being an extrovert.

2. Where are you?
I am working in NAKASEC’s L.A. office.

3. What are you doing?
I am the campaign intern for NAKASEC, and I am very excited to be blogging with the other interns. Hopefully, I will inspire you readers to believe that nothing is impossible and that you should pursue your passions in life.

4. A quote I live by:
James 2:26 (NASB) – For just as the body without the spirit is dead, so also faith without works is dead.

5. You might be surprised to find out that:
One of my greatest childhood friends is Korean-pop singer Megan Lee. I am incredibly happy for her because she just debuted as a singer in Korea. It stills amazes me how hard she worked over the past decade to get to where she is now. Everyone who reads this should support her and listen to her song, “8dayz.”

6. What do you want people to know about you?
I want people to know that I am always open, and I will never pick and choose what I want to hide from others. If anyone asks anything about me, I am always honest with them. I wish that more people shared this trait because some people put up barriers to prevent others from understanding them on a deeper level. With this belief, I open my door to others no matter who they are.
