Position: Technology Support Specialist
Younie was born in Seoul, South Korea and immigrated to the United States with her family at the age of 6. She spent most of her time in Los Angeles before moving up to the Bay Area to attend UC Berkeley where she recently graduated with a double major in cognitive science and art practice. She participated in Immigrants Rising’s Non-Profit Technology Fellowship in 2018-2019 and has returned part-time as Technology Support Specialist to engage her personal interest and experience in technical work as well as her desire to support the undocumented community. Younie is excited to be a part of the work that equips organizations and undocumented individuals with the power of technology and digital transmission of critical information and resources.
Outside of work, Younie loves to produce art on family narratives, explores mental health issues, and critique our broken immigration system. Check out her art portfolio here.
