Graduation Ceremony

Watch as we celebrate the Fellows and their amazing progress throughout this program!

Watch Now

On Friday, July 31st, we hosted our IgniteNextGen Graduation Ceremony for our Fellows. We reflected upon how far our fellows have come these past six-weeks, as well as had our Ignite team, Monica Kang, Jeanie Chang, and Sam Hyun, share their experiences with mentoring these up-and-coming Korean American young leaders.

We had a special guest speaker, Susan Kim, who gave an amazing graduation speech that really opened up the ceremony with professionalism and inspiration. Susan is the CEO of Edmodo, a global education tech platform with over 100 million members that connects learners with the communities and resources needed to reach their full potential.

We invite you to watch the graduation ceremony of our IgniteNextGen fellows as they shared their program-end presentations that showcased their passions, interests, and experiences. We had community members, friends, and family as well come out in support and the event definitely was a memorable one!

The Emerging Leaders Summit and IgniteNextGen Series are presented in partnership by the Council of Korean Americans and the Korean American Coalition – Los Angeles.
