Seniors and Youth (SAY)


Seniors and Youth (SAY, for short) is a cross-generational language program that empowers retired seniors and Korea to become effective language partners and cultural ambassadors who serve aspiring Korean language learners from around the world. The learning happens via weekly Skype calls, which is facilitated by SAY’s own language management web platform. Partners include Seoul Senior Welfare Center, East Asian Language departments at Yale and Princeton Universities. In 3 years, we want to grow SAY into the largest global community of seniors and youth in the world that embodies cross-generational solidarity.

    I am deeply interested in entrepreneurship and design. I have grown up in Korea with interests in the fine arts, until I discovered graphic design to which I have fully moved into. I am currently a graphic designer at the Princeton Student Design Agency and SAY Seniors and Youth team, but prior to Princeton have done design work for school government ads, iOS app UI, and web design.
