Gyeong-A Kang '12
International Relations and Affairs
Gyeong-A Kang first came to the United States as an exchange student at the age of sixteen. Gyeong-A later attended Mount Tahoma High School and Tacoma Community College (TCC). The holistic thinking from courses like Cultural Anthropology fascinated her, so she wanted to pursue International Relations with a foundation in cultural anthropology. By transferring from TCC to Puget Sound, Gyeong-A hopes to explore more fully the influence and importance of different cultures on International Relations in interdisciplinary classes.
