Hyunju Kim was a photographer from 2003-2006 and an ESL instructor from 2006-2012. She is currently pursuing her master's degree in Art Education at the Ohio State University.
In 2005, I was chosen by Human Resources Development Service of Korea for an overseas internship, and worked at the Salvation Army headquarters in Australia. As a media team intern I often visited social welfare organizations for interviews and encountered individuals in need of help. During this time I discovered the power of education as a way of helping them overcome hardships while observing educational programs offered by the social welfare organizations. I realized how education could be a substantial tool in reinforcing the resilient capacity of people and decided to explore the field of education.
