Congratulations to Isobel Brown and Shoko Oda! Both have worked as EASC Student Staff, both have participated in EASC's Global East Asia program to Korea, and now both are graduating with a BA in East Asian Area Studies!
Hailing from Taiwan and the UK, Isobel is a double-major in EAAS and Public Relations, served as a Korean Studies Institute Fellow, and is fluent in Mandarin Chinese. She participated in the Summer '12 Global East Asia Korea program and has been working as an EASC Student Assistant over these past two years. Over the summer she will move to the UK to take on a position within the British government.
Born in Japan and raised across the U.S. and Asia, Shoko is a double-major in EAAS and International Relations and is fluent in Japanese. She was in the same group as Isobel when she went to Korea as a Summer '12 Global East Asia scholar. She also contributed greatly to EASC as a past Student Assistant. Her post-graduation plan is working as a reporter for Bloomberg News in Tokyo.
Many thanks to Isobel and Shoko for all their contributions to EASC over the years. We will miss them and we wish both all the best in their future endeavors!
