For the first monthly interview of the spring semester, we’re featuring Jade Martin, a Junior at Duke University double-majoring in International Comparative Studies and Korean.

Jade began her Korean language journey as a high school senior and applied to the Duke Language Partner Program before even setting foot on campus. Everything changed for Jade after she visited South Korea for the first time in 2019, the summer after her freshman year. Not only did she discover a different career path relating to international relations and government work, but she also developed a deeper connection to Korean language and culture. Over a year and one pandemic later, Jade has found her way back to South Korea where she is now taking classes at Seoul National University.
