Jae Hee Kim, South Korea
Q: What is your name? 
Jae Hee Kim

Q: Where are you from? 
I am South Korean, but I lived most of my life on the Northern Marianas Islands.

Q: Why did you decide to pursue the LLEES programme at UTU? 
I came to Finland because of the world renown reputation in Education. I specifically chose Turku because it isn't too far from the capitol city, Helsinki.

Q: What is your favorite aspect of the programme? 
My favorite aspect of the LLEES programme at UTU is that the students are required to do a lot of reading and writing of academic research. All the while, the professors/ researchers here are very flexible with the students' individual needs, and focused on the students' learning process more than the learning outcome. This allowed me to nurture my internal motivation and love for doing research.

Q: What is your research about? 
I am still struggling to formulate all my interests into a research question(s), but I will be joining a research team at the University of California, Berkeley as an intern to study more about the field of Multicultural Education.

Q: How do you think your degree will help you in the future?
Through this whole experience, I will use my degree to fight and change discriminatory laws that systematically put minorities at a disadvantage due to their race, class, gender, sexuality, and/or ability.

Q: What would you say to someone considering studying at UTU?
If I can do this through UTU, so can you.
