[ “Year in Review” is where you should reflect on the past year and show how you have evolved as a person and as a student. You may want to focus on your growth in a particular area (as a leader, scholar, researcher, etc.) or you may want to talk about your overall experience over the past year.

- Global Awareness: To develop the understanding for existing diversity throughout the society, I would like to either study abroad so that I can learn and experience a different culture or get myself involved in a cultural organization, which might be a Korean-related or Asian-related organization to learn more about my heritage.
- Original Inquiry: Although this will be more towards the latter years of my college career, I will want to acquire a focus within the chemical engineering class. Whether it will be learning more about the polymer side of chemical engineering or environmental, I will want to engage in a focus of the major. From there, I would want to engage myself in a research or some kind of experience that will allow my knowledge to expand based on what is learned from the books but also from the actual experience.
- Academic Enrichment: Out of all, the most important factor to academic enrichment would be to keep a GPA that is higher than 3.3 all throughout my college career.
- Leadership Development: Although leadership isn’t on my mind currently, if there is an opportunity to partake a leadership position in the future, whether it is through an organization or a job, I would love to take advantage of the opportunity. Because I have leadership tendencies when it comes to groups, I would like to use that to advance whatever is involved with the leadership position.
- Service Engagement: Currently, I have joined two clubs at OSU that are service-related organizations called PUP and Buckeyes For Baking. Through those two organizations, I am able to engage myself in service/volunteer-related activities and events.
[“Career” is where you can collect information about your experiences and skills that will apply to your future career.

One of the most important artifacts in my life that I have recently acquired only around 6 months ago is my high school diploma. Although it is merely a physical document, my high school diploma represents the accomplishments I have made for my years in high school. As a whole, the diploma symbolizes the struggle and great memories that I made through high school that will stay for the rest of my life. From the document, I also get the sense that even if one phase of my life is over, the next step is also in my horizon. In this case, the next step is college and my college diploma will be the next step that I will be working towards.
My name is Joy Kim, and my intended major is chemical engineering. I am from Toledo, which is in the northwest area of Ohio, near the border between Ohio and Michigan. In my family, I have two siblings. One is also attending college like I am, and one is still part of high school. I love to play sports, and I plan to play intermural volleyball during the spring this school year. I also enjoy watching sports, which is why I plan to attend various sports games throughout the year including women’s and men’s volleyball and football. One interesting fact about me is that I moved to the US from South Korea when I was in 4th grade. As a result, I can speak two languages fluently.
Because of my interest in the practice of sustability throughout the world, I made the choice to join the Green Engineering Scholars program at OSU. Throughout the school year, I hope to learn more about the topic. One of the more specific topics that I would love to learn more about is plastics, which is part of the reason why I chose chemical engineering as my intended major. In the future, I hope that my knowledge that I have learned through college about being “green” allows me to gear my career towards the direction where sustainability is one of the top priorities of the job and the employer I would work for.
