When Hye-Jin made her campus visit to Barnard, she was inspired by the students and alumnae she met. “I felt I grew 2 inches from that trip and I could only imagine how much I could potentially grow from spending 4 years here,” she says. And grow she has. She’s been a scholar and fellow with Barnard’s Athena Center for Leadership Studies (and earned an award for exceptional student leadership). She was selected to take part in a seminar on critical issues in science and health policy in Washington, D.C. She’s a research assistant at a neuroscience lab. She’s done internships at NY1 News, PBS, and the Bellevue Hospital Center. She studied abroad in London during the Summer Olympics. “Barnard has planted a confidence in me to pursue my passions, specifically in the sciences and broadcasting,” she says.
