I am currently a second year student at the University of Texas at Austin pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry. I was born in Seoul, Korea, but raised in Rowlett, TX and have lived there for the past 14 years. I enjoy live music, good food (or just eating in general, let's be real here) and Texas football. One of my greatest passions is Fitness/Wellness, which led me to become a group fitness instructor for UT RecSports. You can find me most weeknights teaching or taking fun fitness classes at Gregory Gym!
A few fun facts:
'02-'03 Cupstacking champion of Rowlett Elementary.
My childhood dream was to live in Africa with the chimpanzees like Jane Goodall.
I know almost every episode of Friends the TV show by heart.
Sometimes I wonder what the heck I was thinking when I decided that biking over 4,500 miles to Alaska would be a good idea. Reality is, even with a challenge so huge such as this, cancer is so much bigger. I can only imagine the strength, courage and perseverance one must have to fight the monster that is cancer.
I ride to spread hope above all things. I have hope that there will one day be an end to this horrible disease. I am no stranger to losing someone dear to me, and I know it is not easy, to say the least. I have seen the pain of those around me that have or have had family members affected by cancer, and it should not be something that anybody has to ever go through. However, I have also seen the power of hope. Hope is the one thing that we all have in common in the fight against cancer; and through it, I believe the impossible can be made possible.
Life is fragile. To be able to say, "I am healthy" is a true blessing; so I ride for those who can't. I ride for those who fought for life, and for those who continue to fight.
