Juyoung Kim

International Student Director

About Me

Internatinal Students Director, I immigrated to NZ with my family in 2001 from Korea. It was not easy to adapt a different culture and life style in a foreign country. However I was given various cultural experiences and opportunities at AJHS. I am very happy that I am able to share my experiences with our interantional students.
