COMM Alumna Hits the International Stage

Another UD COMM recent alumna is reaching for the stars.

Jungmin Julia Oh has been (and will be) doing some amazing things….I put this little paragraph together:

After graduating from UD in May 2011 with a degree in mass communication, Jungmin Julia Ohwent to DC to complete an internship with the Korea Economic Institute, then with NK News.  During the summer (2012) she completed a highly selective internship as a political affairs intern with the United Nations Office for Disarmament Affairs.

In that role, she participated in the United Nations conference on ‘Arms Trade Treaty 2012’ and provided research support, political analysis, and data collection for high representatives.  After five years in the U.S., Julia departed in August for two weeks at home in South Korea, after which she will cross the world yet again to attend King’s College in London to complete a Master’s program in International Relations.  We are so proud of her!
