Before joining the Foundation, BoBae (BB) had previously worked as a programme coordinator in Korea where she managed volunteer programmes. This included sending domestic students overseas, to mainly Asian countries such as China, India, the Philippines. Prior to this, she had completed a double master’s degree (International development & Public policy). Her degree allowed her to study throughout Asia, Korea (KDI school public policy and Management), China (Tsinghua University) and Japan (National Graduate Institute for Policy Studies).
BB is able to speak Korean, Mandarin and some Japanese. She moved to New Zealand two years ago and says she has loved the experience so far, and hopes to explore more of New Zealand in the future.
