Bio

I’m Jiwon Choi, convergence journalist focusing on international, investigative stories. I earned a B.A. in media communications from Hanyang University, Seoul, South Korea and am currently a master student at the University of Missouri, School of Journalism.

I have been producing radio/TV shows on international topics for Global Journalist as an assistant producer and writing daily/enterprise stories and designing graphics for The Columbia Missourian. My previous work has appeared in Voices of New York, an online daily media focusing on ethic communities in New York, The New York Ilbo, Korean daily newspaper serving Korean community in New York, and several other publications, where I covered under-reported international and community affairs.

I am a native Korean speaker; can speak fluent Japanese, English, and beginner-level Chinese; and have studied abroad in Japan, the U.K., and the U.S. I’m proficient in following programs and skills: Adobe Photoshop, Premiere Pro, Illustrator, InDesign and Audition, Microsoft Office, Final Cut, Virtual Reality shooting and editing, and interactive infographic tools. I have been recently learning HTML, CSS, SQL, and QGIS.

I enjoy traveling around the world, meeting new people and exploring new culture – I call myself the “travel bug.” I also love singing, reading and cooking.
