Interview of KUBS Student Ambassador KUBE 9th Yoon Ji-hyun
Becoming a KUBS Student Ambassador from a ‘Teen Mentee’
 

 
Q.Could you please introduce yourself?
 
My name is Yoon Ji-hyun, and I am currently a sophomore at Korea University Business School. I participated in the third ‘Teen Mentoring Day’ as a teen mentee in my second year at high school, and ever since this event I began to dream of entering KUBS. After entering KUBS, I participated in the seventh ‘Teen Mentoring Day’ event as an undergraduate mentor. And since September 2018, I am working as a student ambassador for KUBS in my hope of leading the way through promoting KUBS.
Q. You have experienced both roles in the Teen Mentoring Event‘ as a teen mentee and a student ambassador. What is the most memorable episode?
 
For me, every moment that I had as a mentee, mentor, and an ambassador is memorable that I cherish. Out of all moments, I want to tell you what happened most recently. During our regular tour in November 2018, I advised high school students of my group to participate in the Teen Mentoring Day event that is held during winter break as I told them about my high school days. I actually met those students in the mentoring event last January, and I was pleased to hear that they applied for the event through my advice. I was not only proud of them but also happy that I was able to help someone. Afterwards, I promised myself to work even harder as a student ambassador with pride.

Q. Have you dreamt of entering KUBS since you were a teen mentee? What did you learn from the Teen Mentoring event?
 
I participated in one of the regular tours at Korea University in my first year of high school. The senior student who introduced the business department was cool, and I was impressed by the grand buildings. Since then I just decided that I would study to go to KUBS. One day, while looking around the KUBS website, I learned about the ‘Teen Mentoring Day’ event and participated as a teen mentee. Particularly, planning and introducing products, ‘Marketing Practice,’ was the most memorable. I became interested in marketing as I actively came up with ideas and presented them in front of people, and came to hope for a career in marketing. Thus, the ‘Teen Mentoring Day’ event hosted by KUBS helped me to have a new dream regarding business administration.
 
Q. Ever since you participated in the 7th ‘Teen Mentoring Day’ event as an undergraduate mentor, you are working as KUBS’s student ambassador ‘KUBE.’ What made you become a student ambassador?
 
What came in mind right after I got admitted to KUBS was that I want to become a mentor in the ‘Teen Mentoring Day’ event. From my experience as participating in the event as a mentee, I know how the event is a special and crucial chance, so I wanted to help students in their shoes. More than anything, I love my fellow KUBE ambassadors who approached me and gave so much love. I was so excited to be a KUBE ambassador and attach a KUBS symbol in my chest, which is something that I drew so many times in my notebook when I was a high school student. So after the Mentoring Day event without hesitancy I applied to be a member of KUBE, and was able to get good results as I appealed to that experience.
Q. Please tell us what you want to say finally.
 
If somebody asks the best thing Ive done since I entered university, I would proudly say becoming a member of KUBE. While working as KUBE, I was reminded of my high school days, and I was amazed to know how the programs I participated in were made. KUBE activities were fun, so I enjoyed working with KUBE friends and teachers. I want to say thank you to the 8th KUBE ambassadors who worked so hard and the 9th KUBE ambassadors who will continue to work with me. Now, I would like to sincerely welcome our 10th KUBE ambassadors. I will end by saying that I always thank and love Korea University Business School which has been with me since I was in high school, KUBE 8th, 9th, 10th ambassadors, and teachers of the PR office.
