Just snippets of my experiences Seoul, South Korea
Hometown: Sacramento, California

Hunter is a third year computer science major student at Occidental College. Outside of his studies, he competes with the college golf team, works for the athletic department communications group, and travels during his free time. The purpose of his study abroad experience is to gain knowledge of South Korea's efforts in mitigating COVID-19. He will use this as inspiration for his graduation comprehensive project back home to pitch the idea of an optimal technological system that helps prevent COVID-19 to spread. However, the proposal must face opposition from America's privacy culture.
