Volunteer Stories

I’m currently a graduate student at the University of Pennsylvania and move to Philadelphia in August of 2020 not knowing anyone and never having traveled to the east coast before. As a Korean-American, I was looking for a way to get involved with the Korean community in my new city. I did some light research and found Woori Center! I was immediately struck by the incredible work Woori Center does on immigrant rights and as a second-generation immigrant, I felt compelled to get involved. Additionally, I missed interacting with youth because they offer so much! I used to be a teacher, camp counselor, and tutor and so I was really excited about the opportunity to work with you again!

The first event I did with Woori Center was a voter registration event at a nearby church. I can remember it being incredibly nerve-wracking when I first started, having to go up to strangers and asking them if they would be interested in registering to vote. Despite this though, I was able to talk to multiple people about registering, and each time I talked to someone, I could feel a small sense of accomplishment even if they didn’t end up registering. After the event was over, I remember thinking that I would enjoy doing something like that again and that I want to try harder to reach out to more people next time. During the event, I was also able to meet other amazing volunteers who were really helpful and friendly throughout the whole thing.
