This week’s episode of Korean American Perspectives features Jenny Town, a Stimson Fellow, Managing Editor of Stimson’s 38 North, and Associate Member of CKA. From growing up in Northern Minnesota to learning Korean at Ewha Womans University to the drawn-out search for her biological parents, Jenny shares her personal experience as a Korean American adoptee and why we as a community must be invested in adoptee and immigration issues.

Jenny was also recently named one of Fast Company’s Most Creative People in Business in 2019 for her role in co-founding and managing 38 North, a website devoted to providing policy and technical analysis on North Korea. Join us as Jenny’s recounts her diverse and accomplished career path and how she navigates the all-too-common scenario of being the only woman in the room.
