About the Millennium Fellow

Born in South Korea and raised in Canada, Hyun Jung Ryu is an intrinsically curious, determined, and social individual, who has always been excited to help change society for the better. Questioning the world around her and wanting to examine real-world issues through an interdisciplinary lens, led her to pursue an undergraduate degree in International Studies, which she is still finishing up. Ever since she was little, Jung has always been enthusiastic about advocating for social issues, helping those in need, and learning more about the challenges societies face, in hopes of having a career one day where she can help make progress.
