Hi! I am Clara Lee and I am pursuing a double major in CAPS and Government. I am from Seoul, South Korea. I have always been interested in Chinese and am fascinated by learning more about the country and the culture itself. At Cornell, I am an active member of Alpha Phi Omega, Gamma Chapter, a community-service fraternity. I am currently living in the Mandarin-Chinese language house on west campus and am also taking part in activities via associations such as JUSA (Japan-United States Association) and KSA (Korean Student Association). I also love volunteering in my free time, as every Sunday I volunteer to teach Korean to young Korean American kids via the Korean Christian Community. As part of NK Focus, (North Korea Focus), I also try to raise awareness of the situation in North Korea. I am particularly interested in China's foreign policies and international relationship and hope to pursue my career in a government organization or NGO.
