The Power of Milken Scholar Mentorship

“…becoming a mentor for Jiyoun was one of the best ‘accidental’ or ‘coincidental’ things to happen to me. The friendship that grew out of my and Jiyoun’s mentor-mentee pairing greatly improved my college experience — she is someone I know I can call a friend for the rest of my life, beyond college. And I use the term of being Jiyoun’s ‘mentor’ loosely, because she has equally given me so much advice and support. From talking about the course curriculum or social scenes specifically at Princeton, to discussing personal challenges and career goals/motivations, and anything and everything in between, our mentor-mentee relationship has been an integral part of my college experience.” – Jamie Kim, MS ‘18

During my trip to South Korea this past summer, I was able to take a short trip to Jeju Island for a few days. Jeju Island is a volcanic island off the southern tip of Korea. It is known as a popular honeymoon destination – or at least it was, according to my parents who spent their own honeymoon there about 30 years ago. This was the first time they visited the island together since then.
