Jaehyeon (Jay) Park
My name is Jaehyeon Park, and I am a junior at Cornerstone Collegiate Academy in Seoul, South Korea. Since my early years in New England, I’ve had the opportunity to meet with a variety of students who engaged in a number of volunteer activities for their communities. These unique experiences taught me important lessons about the value of becoming a ‘helping hand’ in the community. These insights prompted me to also contribute to the community through hands for Socal, a non-profit organization that helps people all around the world. As the organization's new president and the former East Coast Chapter Representative, I'm here to carry on the Hands for SoCal legacy of becoming a helping hand in our communities and promoting virtuous altruism around the world.
