Foreign Student Delivers Commencement Speech for the First Time at SNU

At SNU’s summer graduation ceremony, for the first time ever, a foreign student delivered the commencement speech, reflecting the growing foreign student population here at SNU. Ms. Yana HONG (’13, Dept. of Korean and Korean Literature), despite being an ethnic Korean, is a 3rd generation Russian immigrant and at first had difficulty understanding Korean at SNU. To overcome this, she says she tried to interact with Koreans as much as possible, and joined several student clubs. Ms. Hong is currently interning at a major corporation, and wishes to work in Korean-Russian trade relations.
