BA Candidate - International Law and Long-term Nation Development
Sean is a senior at Gallatin studying the interdisciplinary relations between international law, politics, development, economics, and intra/inter state dynamics. He was born in South Korea and lived most of his life in Los Angeles. His immigrant experience, from threat of deportation to displacement, as well as his fascination with racial politics and law has inspired his concentration and desire to attend law school. He is currently serving his second year as the President of Gallatin’s Student Council and hopes to continue to support the diverse student population at Gallatin. Through 2019, Sean was a Gallatin Human Rights Fellow and advocated for immigrant rights through his project in Los Angeles, working primarily on asylum cases for undocumented individuals. In 2018, he was also the recipient of the Gallatin China Summer Scholarship and spent his summer at NYU Shanghai, taking classes and immersing himself in Chinese culture.
