Position: High School Program Participant
Host Site: Pittsburg High School (Pittsburg, CA)
Jun immigrated with his family to the United States from South Korea at the age of seven. His parents wanted him and his brother to receive a better education and pursue a better life. Jun is a recent graduate of the University of California Davis, where he obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology. During his time at UC Davis, Jun had the pleasure of building a community with other undocumented students through the AB540 and Undocumented Student Center. The center provided him with knowledge and resources in order to successfully navigate through college as an undocumented student. His interest in high school education stems from his dream of becoming a school social worker in the future. He hopes to impact undocumented high school students through mentorship and by building positive relationships and looks forward to providing the resources and knowledge needed to transition from high school to college and successfully navigate through their academic careers.
