Madeline is a Senior majoring in Linguistics with a minor in East Asian Languages and Cultures. She is interested in Japanese-Korean relations as well as the globalization of these cultures in America, and as a result has studied Korean for three years and Japanese for six. She hopes to use her research in Linguistics and East Asian culture to help bring the two cultures together, in addition to bringing them closer to America. After graduation, she intends to move to Korea and engage in research and activities to help bridge the gaps between these three cultures through both language and business, with an ultimate goal of popularizing East Asian culture in America.
