Education is the most powerful weapon
Say hello to our Director of Fundraising: Hyewon No!
Hyewon currently attends Occidental College in Los Angeles, CA as a Biology major. However, she is originally from the city of Costco: Kirkland, WA. She is aspiring to pursue a career in medicine.
In her free time, Hyewon loves to just wander around. That’s because she loves people-watching…weird…;) When asked about her favorite movie, she answered: Inception. We guess that she likes her mind getting blown.
For Hyewon, education simply means Freedom because she strongly believes that education has the ability to, quite literally, change the world when utilized and distributed properly.
Despite her confusing name (which is pronounced more like “hae” then “won” as in wonton soup), Hyewon is down-to-earth, easy to get to know, and is always in a positive mood. Just bring up Trey Songz, N.E.R.D, or John Legend to her and she will automatically become your friend.
