Hye Won Hong

“I moved to the U.S. from Seoul, South Korea, when I was in high school and later attended Macalester College in St. Paul, Minnesota. During school breaks, I flew back to Korea and volunteered at the National Medical Center (NMC), a non-profit, government-supported hospital. Seeing the impact NMC healthcare workers made on underserved rural Korean communities influenced my decision to pursue nursing.
I am currently in the second phase of the Combined BS/MS Program, studying to become a pediatric nurse practitioner. I am on a strict budget and am grateful to the alumni, faculty and friends who helped to fund my tuition through their gifts to the Annual Fund. Upon graduation, I plan to work for UNICEF, UNAIDS or WHO. I look forward to enabling future nursing students to study at Columbia by contributing to the Annual Fund.”
