My name is Annie Yin and I’m a rising sophomore from Norman, Oklahoma. I’m interested in a wide variety of things, including but not limited to computer science, math, medicine, education, and anything Asian.
When I began applying for DukeEngage, I knew I wanted to teach in an Asian country while also putting my newly acquired Korean skills to use, so it made sense to apply to the South Korea program. Also, as an immigrant who has experienced the struggle of learning a new language and adapting to a new environment at a young age, I similarly wanted to help migrant children and North Korean refugees adapt to, understand, and comfortably live in South Korea.
I’m extremely excited for this summer of service and personal development! Go DESK ’16!
