James Park was recently graduated from Emory University where he studied Materials Science Engineering with a concentration in Physics. James will be attending St. Andrews University in Scotland as a Bobby Jones Scholar to pursue a masters degree in artificial intelligence. Ultimately, James aspires to pursue a career in medicine where he can help the patients who have the full trust on the doctors operating on them. As an international student, James spent much of his time being concerned with other people’s perception of him. However, he progressed as a creative leader by fully appreciating his identity through his involvements in LGBTQ community.
In addition to serving on oSTEM’s national organization, James is a founding member of the Condom Pledge, a nonprofit campaign to normalize condom use in youth populations around the world. When he is not busy at school, he enjoys traveling and doing leisurely activities such as hiking where he can go to picturesque places.
