Getting the practical experience at Google and Bloomberg

I grew up in Seoul and Oklahoma without being exposed to other parts of the world before coming to Hong Kong. Coming to HKU was an adventure itself for me but I soon realized that it was the best decision I could make as an aspiring journalist. As I majored in Journalism, Politics and Public Administration, I was constantly encouraged to gain hands on experience and venture into the outside world. I gained practical experience by interning at different places like Associated Press, Google, Bloomberg, and Channel News Asia. The interdisciplinary nature of the curriculum really helped me cover different beats from politics in South Korea, economy and markets in Singapore, and now blockchain and cryptocurrency industry in Hong Kong
