About Boyoung Kwon
Born and educated in South Korea, Boyoung landed her first gig as a system engineer with the electronics giant LG. Although the position was fulfilling, Boyoung was soon presented with the opportunity to live in NYC and improve her skills while experiencing a new culture. During this period in Gotham, to augment her studies, she worked as an intern for an open source-based start-up. Impressed by Boyoung's work ethic and rapid mastery of the product, they offered her a permanent position. This experience taught her invaluable skills and knowledge: Involvement in the open source community, thin client manufacturing, assimilating into an alien work environment, intranet development, management of staff, and the challenges of striving to make a startup company successful. As rewarding as this time was for Boyoung, she longed for an even more creative challenge. Inspired by the developing wave of intensive programming schools, Boyoung immersed herself in relevant languages and systems; attending programming meetups as preparation for her next challenge. Her application and acceptance into the Flatiron School confirmed this choice.: She is now prepared to build something wonderful.
