[SUNY Korea’s 8 New Student Ambassadors]
Eunbin (Elisa) Cho - South Korea
Applied Mathematics and Statistics, joined Spring 2023
I'm still exploring what kind of career I want, but for my immediate plan, I am going to pursue my master's degree. Being a proactive and welcoming representative is a role I am committed to fulfilling. As a Korean who has lived most of her life outside of Korea, I want to be a voice of the students who have similar experiences to mine because I know how it feels to be out of place when you are expected to not feel such a way.
I aspire to be a supportive and compassionate individual who strives to make a positive impact around the world. As a student ambassador, I will do my best to represent the great people of SUNY Korea and its unique, yet global learning experience to become the history makers who change the world.

As an ambassador I wish to let others know of how welcoming of a place our university is and how they can find friends in every corner. My future goals are broad, only entailing to give back to my friends and family who got me this far.
Despite my fear of flying, I’m deeply passionate about aeronautics and aspire to uncover its technological wonders. As a SUNY Korea student ambassador, I am looking forward to representing my fellow students and the university in general, and also communicating our vision and mission to prospective students looking to join us as history makers, parents, and anyone curious about what we stand for.
I decided to join the TSM major due my interest in societies’ dependency on technological advancements and how they are shaping the world. With technology constantly growing and humanity entering this new era, I want to effectively be part of this immense change. As a student ambassador I hope to bring more joy to SUNY Korea and add to it values in any way I can.
I love seeing how technology shapes our lives, such as artificial intelligence transforming industries and improving human lives. I would like to develop AI solutions and contribute to the latest advancements in the field. As a student ambassador, I aim to set an example both academically and socially. I would also like to show the image of the school as a foundation for everyone to fit in and fulfil their needs and dreams.
