Joanna Mills

Korean Language Instructor

Originally from the east coast, Joanna moved to Washington State with the desire to dive into the field of Education. She has studied Korean language, culture, and history at WonKwang Girls’ High School, Seoul National University, Chonbuk National University, Korea University, and the University of Hawai’i at Manoa. She has worked in Seoul as a translator and program intern with YES International, the hosting organization for the National Security Language Initiative for Youth (NSLI-Y) Korea program. An alum of both the NSLI-Y and Critical Language Scholarship study abroad programs, Joanna is excited to now be a part of OWN where she can encourage the next generation of students eager to learn Korean to also study abroad and consider how they can continue to use their language skills beyond the classroom!
