International Student Spotlight: Sojeong Nam

Sojeong Nam is a PhD candidate in the counselor education and supervision program at the University of Iowa. The inspiration to attend the UI may have come from her father, Dr. Sangin Nam, who, over 30 years earlier, graduated from the same doctoral program at the UI, holding the distinction of being the first international student from South Korea to do so.

After achieving many academic successes during her PhD studies, Sojeong plans to defend her dissertation this summer.
