So-yung was born in Korea and raised in the North Georgia Appalachian Mountains. After completing their undergraduate degree in Women’s and Gender Studies in the Boston area, they were excited to return back home and work in the South! So-yung has enjoyed working with children of all ages, mostly through different summer camps and youth workshops. When they’re not teaching, loving on, and growing with the kids, So-yung can often be found practicing capoeira or sharing poetry and music with friends!
