Jiwon Moon

Hello! I’m Jiwon. I was born in Korea and moved to the US when I was 10. I grew up in Loma Linda and moved to Berkeley for undergrad. I thought I wanted to become a doctor all my life but it turned out to be not true! I hated being in the hospital. So my third year of college, I quit pre-med and decided to study abroad (Hong Kong and Cambridge) instead. Now I help founders (specifically women and immigrants) get funding at a startup called Wefunder. I’m so inspired by creators, entrepreneurs and makers and hope to be one myself soon. I’m an only child so I strangely don’t mind being alone. I love music, reading, yoga and being in the woods, camping or hiking. My favorite place is Jeju Island, where my parents grew up 🙂 I hope to live there one day!
