Class of 2020
I am Sunwoo, a senior student majoring in Mathematical, Computational and Statistical Sciences. I was born in Korea, grew up in Hong Kong and came to Singapore for college. Due to my multi-cultural upbringing, I have had a lot of exposure to Chinese/Sinophone culture, which sparked my interest in pursuing this further by minoring in Chinese Studies. So far, I have been lucky to participate in a three-month language programme in Kunming, China in my sophomore year, where I learned more about the language as well as managed to truly immerse in the culture by living with a local Chinese university student. I have also had wonderful opportunities to learn more about other aspects of Chinese-related works academically through a literature course that focuses on Sinophone films and books, as well as philosophy courses on Buddhism, Neo-Confucianism as well as Chinese Political Philosophy as a whole.
Outside of school, I was involved in the NUS Archery team, and I enjoy going on adventures to discover new culinary delights in Singapore!
