Here’s a little bit about Muziah, one of the students in the first DAMES graduate program cohort!
Tell us about yourself!
Hi, my name is Muziah Kargbo, a first-year grad student from Huntersville, NC. I graduated from UNC last year with a BA in Asian and Korean Studies with a dash of Japanese. Nice to meet you all.
What program track did you choose?
I’m taking the interdisciplinary Track with a focus on Korean and Japanese courses.
What are you hoping to gain from your experiences here in DAMES and at UNC?
I hope that by the time I graduate from DAMES, I will be more fluent and adept in Japanese and Korean so I can use both in my future career and endeavors whether that be translating, writing/journalism, or researching and educating myself and others about the entertainment industry in both countries (which I hope I can find an internship or work in!) But ultimately, I hope to gain the confidence, skills, and connections for post-grad life and my future.
