about Jiwon

Jiwon grew up in Seoul, South Korea and came to the US for college to attend Yale University in 2012. It was during college that Jiwon felt called to follow Christ in her life and that completely changed her. After graduating Yale with a B.A. in Political Science, she came to Stanford for her Ph.D. in Political Science in 2016. There, she met her husband Sam, who is pursuing an M.D./Ph.D. at Stanford. They met at a Christian event on campus and got married in 2019. They welcomed their daughter Yireh in 2022. During her graduate studies, Jiwon continued to be drawn to campus ministries and met the RUF at Stanford team through her church, Grace Presbyterian Church. After completing her graduate studies in 2023, she joined as part time staff to serve Stanford students.

Jiwon loves going on walks with folks, grabbing boba and having good conversations, writing, and spending time with family and friends.
