My name is Sun Woo Koo, and I am a foreign student who recently graduated from NYU Stern School of Business undergraduate program. I majored in Finance and Economics. My story that leads to BRAC starts from the 2 years I took off from my college education to serve in the army of the Republic of Korea. This break helped me stop flowing reluctantly into the path where everyone seems to go and revaluate my purpose in life. One day in the base, I realized that what I really want to do is to solve problems of the world with colleagues who are forerunners of innovation and creativity. This initial dream led me to the concept of “Social Enterprise” which soon narrowed into the concept of “Microfinance” which is a perfect fit to both my specialty and passion. After the discharge and during the first class back in NYU, I had chance to hear from Susan Davis and about her life in BRAC. I felt all the puzzles coming into the exact spot and I started to see a glimpse of my future.
