Sungho Yoo '17, Johns Hopkins University

Sungho Yoo '17 came to the United States from Korea. Arriving at Church Farm School in 10th grade he recalls, “The environment was so diverse! It was something that I never expected to exist in America.”

Living within a diverse environment—ethnically, financially and otherwise—was important to Sungho. “Like Korea, America suffers through economic division. Church Farm School has helped me to develop my passion, which is to help resolve that division.”

Sungho is currently pursuing that passion at Johns Hopkins University (JHU). “I selected Johns Hopkins because Baltimore has an underserved population and the school is very much involved in helping achieve economic equality there.” 

Through his time at CFS, Sungho says the school “helped me become more fluent in communicating with people of other backgrounds.
