Hayoung Kim, McDaniel College
Hayoung Kim, a senior at McDaniel College, is deeply interested in global conflict resolution. A political science and international studies major, Hayoung has traveled abroad to China, Tibet, South Korea, Macedonia, and Nicaragua, where she participated in international study programs and volunteer work. This includes studying at the Preparing Global Leaders Institute, where she joined other young leaders being trained in conflict resolution and prevention. These experiences have fueled her heart with passion addressing conflict issues not just for the United States, but also for the world, motivating her tireless dedication and passion to foster diplomacy through understanding and tolerance of different communities. Besides her two years of leadership experience with the McDaniel College Student Government Association and Global Fellows Program, Hayoung has also interned in Washington, D.C. at the U.S. Department of Commerce and the U.S. Department of Justice. These experiences have allowed Hayoung insight into both the history at the root of global conflict in local communities abroad and different leadership perspectives of political leaders, and will enable her to achieve her goal of becoming a leader in conflict resolution for the U.S.
