About SungJin

I moved to China as a teenager without any Mandarin-language skills, and was fortunate to meet many kind and patient people who helped me reach my goals of learning a new language and being successful in a foreign country. Of course, there were always challenging situations and many ups and downs along the way, but with focus and dedication I was able to persevere.

When I later moved to Canada, I once again received support and generosity from the people around me, so I'll always do my best to help others in the same way.

Whether it’s your first experience overseas or not, living and studying in a foreign country can be very challenging. I’m thrilled to be part of an amazing international community at UVic that has the opportunity to support many talented future students.

My advice to future university students

Don’t be afraid to ask questions. I was a shy student who didn’t like to ask for help. Now I understand that speaking up when you need to is nothing to be embarrassed about.
