Hope was born in California and grew up in the Bay Area. She graduated from University of California, Davis with a major in Psychology, and currently works as a Customer Success Manager at GuideSpark, a workforce communications company.

Hope feels fortunate to have grown up in a community surrounded by Korean Americans who have guided and shaped her into the person she is today. She desires to give back to the community and particularly aspires to help underprivileged families and children. Hope was the first KACF-SF intern, helping us launch the Foundation in 2014, and has continued to volunteer her time and talents.

Hope enjoys outdoor activities and avidly seeks adventures and new experiences. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with family, friends, and her church.

“KACF-SF is a unique organization, and it is truly inspiring to see the incredible passion that both the members of KACF-SF and community organizations have for the Korean American community. I have enjoyed watching the organization flourish and grow, and hope the Foundation’s mission kindles a passion in future generations, that we may work together to meet the needs of others for a purpose much greater than ourselves.”
