Meet The Honorees : Korean American Day 2013
On January 11, 2013, the Korea Economic Institute of America recently led Washington DC’s celebration of Korean American Day by hosting a luncheon event to honor two Korean Americans for their work in giving back to local, regional, and international communities. Joined at the event by World Bank Group President Jim Yong Kim and NBC4 TV Presenter Eun Yang, KEIA recognized the work of One Day’s Wages founder Eugene Cho, and Kyung Yoon, co-founder of the Korean American Community Foundation.
After the event and ceremony, Korean Kontext got the opportunity to speak more with Eugene and Kyung, to find out more about their work, how Korean Americans are giving back, and what they thought about being recognized for their endeavors. Join us for a very special podcast with the honorees of Korean American Day 2013!
